Apple Configurator 2 and "A server with the specified hostname could not be found"

TL;DR: Don't believe the message, just keep clicking Next.

When I define a new MDM server in Apple Configurator 2 with Preferences > Servers > Add (+), I enter the correct URL in the "Hostname or URL field":
aa45546023494628a5a5159668da9aa3

But then I get an error message which initially stopped me in my tracks:
9e2ad7f231124d68b8ec8dbb5127c2a8

If this happens to you, click Next. Then at the pane for Enrollment Profile and Trust Profile, click Next again.
7c48005d5477490bb500ebca16deca94

You'll see your MDM server is listed:
eeead0b23cb34272bef04de0998b1030

And if you double-click your newly defined MDM server, you'll see that Apple Configurator 2 found the right trust certificates:
8e99699d838e40a4bf4bd2476b34f75c

Hope this helps.
