hi i tried the
but it did not verify and throws an error

Verification Error
A server with the specified hostname could not be found.
please help!!!

This error message usually indicates the hostname can’t be found. First you will need to review the /private/etc/hosts with any kind of editor. Second, make sure your localhost address is available and no line is corrupted. If there is any corrupted line you will have to delete it.
