    Sounds like a problem with the DNS... is the IP the same when you ping the domain name?

    Make sure the a host name of ftp.yourhostname.com is in on your dns file. Make sure whoever has authoritive nameserver rights to the domain has the a host record on there dns of this ftp. And if its only intermittantly not seeing the ftp.x.com site, blame your ISP for poor dns lookups...
