Hey @Micatsangelo.

Thanks for reaching out. 
Just to gather some additional context, does your personal profile when you navigate to Settings > Store details have any special characters, by any chance? In some cases, this error message may occur if you have special characters in your personal information. Additionally, I would suggest making sure that you have not added any spaces in the domain when you are attempting to purchase the domain. 
Looking forward to your response.
