The naming conventions of the scanned image files is, at the time of this post, a critical topic when applying for a domain name.

For Cover Letter, you should name the image: yourdomainname.com.np_coverletter.jpg.
Consider the available image formats.
After uploading the images, click the 'Request domain' button that appears at the end of the form.
Then, you'll be redirected to your dashboard where you can check the status of your domain application.
It can take 2-3 working days for your request to be processed. If you have followed all the steps mentioned above and have read the terms and conditions, your application will likely be approved and you will see it listed under 'Active domain' section. You are then open to use your active domain name.
In case your application is rejected, retrace the above steps and make sure you have followed all the conventions. If problems persist, do mention them in the comments below.
