Hello gavaig, The domain name is not yet pointed to our name servers ( and so the IP address in the connection is not ours. To connect to the server using the domain name, you will need to have the registrar of the domain point to our name servers. Also, when trying to connect, our shared server environment only uses port 21, so be sure not to try port 22 or it will error out. While waiting for the domain name to point to our servers, you can connect by using the hosting server IP in place of the domain name. You can find your IP address by following these instructions.
