Check for invalid servername or IP

Dear FileZilla team,

sometimes it happens, that I just forget to enter a proper server name. I.e. I just forget .com or .de to add. Therefore the request will fail.

A msgBox would be usefull which directly gives you a warning, if an invalid servername was entered in quick connect bar.

Those domains are not necessarily invalid. For example it could be local hostnames only available inside your LAN or your system or your DNS server might be configured with a custom DNS suffix that gets appended.

Since FileZilla cannot possibly know this, it simply does as instructed and attempts to resolve the hostname exactly as entered.
