Error: 11001 in Request ConnectAsync 500 Host Not Found Winsock #11001
If you get this error when you try to upload, there are a few things you should try:
- Make sure you are connected to the Internet. A good way to test this is to go to a website and refresh the page.
- Make sure the server you are trying to connect to is spelled correctly.
- If your website is fairly new, the DNS may have not propagated yet, and the server you are using may not have an IP associated with it.
Try this: Start > Run > Type in CMD > Press Enter > Type in PING yourdomainname.com. If it says “Ping request could not find host” or “Host not found,” the domain name you are trying to connect to isn't working correctly.
If this doesn't work, contact your web hosting company. They may be able to provide you with your actual IP address to use until the DNS has propagated.
