Look, I love this game, but this is getting out of hand. Since the 1.3.1 update the nether in my server has been reset, we had lost tons of material from glitches in the nether, and died in the process. I was able to put up with that, but I cannot stand to keep staring at my minecraft multiplayer screen and seeing this:

This is absurd, I've looked up the issues with this error message already, and done everything I can think of to fix it. Like other players, I've put a lot of time into this game, and the $30 I spent means nothing if I can't even go onto my servers; that was the whole point of paying $30 in the first place.

I love this game, but it's just not worth playing if I cannot connect to the server. If anyone can help, please do. I would hate it if I stopped playing. However, if I can't fix this, I'm just going to ask for my money back; this is not ok.

Thank you,

"Can't resolve hostname" means that it can't find the server. So it's saying that either the server doesn't exist anymore, or the IP changed...

Ok, well my first question is: how did this happen? We didn't change a single thing, it just popped out of the blue six days ago.

I have something seriously wrong with minecraft. every time i type in server ip like <us12.mcsg.in> for minecraft survival games its say cant resolve host name. the server still exists and ip has not changed because my freind uses the same ip and can enter,and i even went to check on their offical website and the server ip was exactly the same as i typed in.my freinds suggested deleting all minecraft files i have in my computer and reinstalling minecraft but its still the smae minecraft cannot resolve hostname.i repeatedly tried to unistall and delete all files and reinstalling but to no avail. if anyone can tell me how to fix this problem it will be gladly appreciated.
