Issue with Spider

I have an issue with spider while I try to scan a site it keeps giving me this error message while attempting to crawl:
 [-] Spider: Giving up on:
 [-] Spider: Couldn't get a response after 5 tries.
 [-] Spider: Because: Couldn't resolve host name
 [*] Resolver: Resolving hostnames...
 [*] Resolver: Done!
If I access the same url from a browser it takes about a min before the page is loaded, so I think if I can increase the number of times the spider will attempt to resolve the hostname maybe that will solve the problem.
How can you help me with this.
Thanks for your anticipated response.

    Hey, you can try increasing the --http-timeout, it expects the value in milliseconds.
