c# – Godaddy .net site hosting issue – No Such host is known Error

This error essentially means the IP cannot be resolved to a host name.

A few things that might be going on here:

  • The external IP does not work internally in which case, you should modify your connection string so that it uses the internal host name and port if necessary (it should be available somewhere in GoDaddy).

  • You have the wrong IP and/or port. Check your connection settings.

  • You are using the wrong format for your connection string. Double check the format against the provider. I have seen connection strings for MySQL where the port is a separate argument, like this:

Connection String: Server=myServerAddress;Port=1234;Database=myDataBase;Uid=myUsername;Pwd=myPassword;

That server portion of your connection string, even with parts blotted out, looks awfully long. It should look like this: 000.000.000.000. The four parts should be numbers from 0-255, and not all four parts have to be three digit numbers. If theres :3306 afterward, take that out.
