"Connection Failed"

I'm getting a "Connection Failed" from Cyberduck when following along with Nick. I've tried all the suggestions from WebHostingForStudents on their FAQ and sent a ticket out. I've checked 3+ times to ensure I'm entering the correct login information where it needs to go. I'm absolutely stuck, does anybody have a suggestion or ran into this problem as well? I'm using Win 8, Chrome Brows

Hi Josh Brown,

I have the same problem! And the reason is my ISP. For some reason, they block my host. My solution is, when I want to upload something, I connect internet through my iPhone with Bluetooth. If you have option like mine, I would suggest trying. As we all know ISP can be very stubborn for no reason... Hope this helps!

Oğulcan Girginc thanks for the reply!

After investigating the issue further on some forums through webhostingforstudents, I found that it was a simple error in not properly changing my DNS on my computer to match the DNS given to me found in the "Account setup" email that I received at the time of purchase.

I would try this and see if it works for you as well.

The thread is [SOLVED]

Thanks again!
