Default (CURL) Could'nt resolve host error.

I am getting this error when trying to run a standalone version of a roster program on my site. WHat the program does is goto the site and grabs an XML feed and parses it on the page. Here is the error:

(CURL) Error 6: Couldn't resolve host 'eq2players.station.sony.com'

Cannot retrieve data from the EQ2Players website!

This seems to be somewhere in the config of my server (dns problem maybe?) But I cant find out how to fix it. Any ideas?

DNS resolving is not working on your system. You can test if it works oke, when the command
dig eq2players.station.sony.com
from a terminal gives you a valid response.

How did you setup DNS?

What's the exact output?
What's in /etc/resolv.conf?
