SSL Domain Verification with TXT record in DNS zone

Hi, I need help. I'm trying to obtain a free SSL certificate on zerossl.com and choose DNS Verification since free byet hosting( my host) have  installed script that blocks http verification. Now, I'm trying to use the DNS verification but I'm having a hard time verifying if I did it right. I did a little research and found the nslookup. Tried typing the command nslookup dloadetc.com and nslookup -type=any dloadetc.com (dloadetc.com is my domain) and also type nslookup -q=TXT as per zerossl instruction on the attached photo and this is all I've got. Please help me. Thank you.
