First, the can't resolve hostname is probably because of leading or trailing spaces.

Second, there appears to be a shortage of WU.

Third, Classic S@H and BOINC S@H do not always play well together. On some OSs classic S@H runs at a higher priority than the BOINC projects, so BOINC will be starved for CPU time.

There is another BOINC project that is in public alpha. It can be reached at Attach to both if you are having trouble getting S@H WU.

In the end, it comes down to your choice when you switch to BOINC and what projects you attach to.
