Question Won't let me connect

Alright I've been using FlashFXP for about a year now, only before I was hosted by my friend, who took care of all the setup. Now I've bought my own domain name - www.use-your-imagination.com - and I'm following the tutorial on the official FlashFXP site but I'm stuck. On the tutorial, it says click "Apply." After that it says to quick connect. I click apply and everything is okay, but when I try to quick connect it says the following:

WinSock 2.0
Unable to resolve host: use-your-imagination.com
Delaying for 60 seconds before reconnect attempt #1

and it keeps doing that. I also tried using "ftp.use-your-imagination.com" as a host and this is what I get:

WinSock 2.0
Unable to resolve host: ftp.use-your-imagination.com
Delaying for 60 seconds before reconnect attempt #1

Does anyone know what the problem is? I'm sure it's a stupid easy thing to fix but since I never had to learn how to learn this part of the software...I don't know how. I searched all through the FlashFXP site but can't find anything that helps me.

EDIT: here's that info that I guess I have to include:
FlashFXP v[ ].[ ] whatever the newest version is ,build [I don't know what this means], [ ]registered, [x]unregistered, [ ]pirated

How can you use FlashFXP for a year unregistered if the trial limit is 31 days?

Besides that, the error you get has nothing to do with FlashFXP. It gives the error: Unable to resolve host, which means that your domain name isn't properly linked to the ip adress. You need to contact your hosting company to resolve this error.

Okay, thanks! Also, I used it on my friend's computer before - he was registered. But now I have my own domain so I downloaded the free software on mine.
