Where do you try to connect from?

There is something blocking you - a firewall for example or something gets wrong with the resolving of the name.  What happens if you try using the IP directly (to eliminate DNS issue at your end?

I can connect ok to the address so the site DNS is ok.
try to trace route the ftp.webhostingspider.com to see where you are blocked. and also try the nslookup command for the same site to see if it resolves the name to IP address.

do you have any firewall device seperating you from the internet? if yes check that ftp port is allowed through this firewall, you can also download coreftp software and try to connect to this site through this software.

The prob was that the the main parent IP was different and unique from the one pointing in the configuration file. I had to change the resolv.conf file.
