Directories are not accepting the URL

I've been trying to add my site https://bugattihairimports.com/ on many free directory sites but I am getting this error:

"The URL could not be validated. Either the page does not exist or the server could not be contacted. The URL already exists in the directory."

I have no clue what might be the reason for the above error.  I heard that this usually happens with all the Shopify sites. Is submitting site starting https:// is an issue?

Anyone who could help me?

Generally those directories can't validate HTTPS urls.

What's your reasoning for adding your site link to directories - do you think this will increase SEO?

I don't think this is a case of HTTPs. Directory sites do accept https URLs. I have another website that runs on SSL and I can easily submit that website on those directories.  Is there any issue with the shopify SSL only?

There two reason why your website doesn't accept in any business directory:

1. Formatting of your url, your business link should have WWW

2. Business Directory website has bug or using the old technology
