If you guys can get to this link tell me please. Most people can not. Infact no one can, so just making sure. Another thing is.. If it doesnt does anyone know any Ideas why? Its >
The IP address you gave doesn't respond to ping.
Do you have some software/hardware firewall blocking connections? Are you behind a router? Make sure that all incoming connections are going to your computer and not being blocked/filtered.
Are you sure that you have the correct IP address?

Woah, I just found out that you have to pay to set up a server? is that correct?
If you have the bandwith, a static IP address (preferrably), and a machine you can use as your server, you can host it yourself free of charge (apart from your Internet costs).
If you don't have the bandwith or don't want to manage the server yourself, you can pay for it to be hosted.
If you are playing copyrighted music, you have to pay a licensing fee/royalties.
