FTP Filezilla wont connect

I tried the FTP configure file from cPanel but it still fails to connect on Filezilla. I am using Mac. Here is the error:

Status:      Resolving address of

Status:      Connection attempt failed with "EAI_NONAME - Neither nodename nor servname provided, or not known".


I am guessing I have to wait for the DNS to propagate? It's been 3'ish days already. This is a new account.

Hey there @Siphon880gd 


Try using the IP address of your server for the Hostname. As long as you have the correct username/password/port number, it should connect with little to no issue that way.
