The first thing to check is if your computer is connected to the internet. This error can happen when the DOMAIN.COM does not resolve, so the work around at this point is retrieving the IP of the said DOMAIN.COM, which when added will be http://IPAddress.com not http://DOMAIN.com.

This should resolve the issue.
In my case the issue was ALLOW_URL_INCLUDE=Off, which when On worked out.
