Hey! If you guys are having the unknown host issue, and you are sure that you have the IP typed in 100% correct, you may be having local DNS issues.

Follow this guide: https://store.opendns.com/setup/

Disclaimer: Minecraft Survival Games claims no responsibilities to third party materials, following the guide means that you take full responsibility for any issues that it causes.

~Thanks to MrMark for the original guide over at TIMV


The servers you should set your DNS servers to are: 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220

This worked for me, and as I was not having the issue before 1.4.2 as has happened to most I assume that this should work for most of you. If it doesn't please post here so we can work together to figure this out.

(update) Added IPs of the DNS servers, thanks Sub

I'm sorry I have no idea what you're talking about? The link I put takes you straight to a guide, and you don't need to login to anything.
