What is a hosts File Modification?

A hosts file modification is a simple tweak that is used to &#;trick&#; your computer into resolving to a specific IP. This is especially useful when developing your site on our server when your nameservers are not pointed to us yet. This is necessary when you are working with domain-name-dependent software (ie: Content Management System (CMS), such as Joomla! or WordPress).

How Does a hosts File Modification Work?

DNS vs. hosts File Modification info-graphic depicting the path of routing a domain to an IP from different devices after performing a hosts file modification on your computer.

The image (to the right) depicts the process of resolving a domain to an IP address using various devices. In the image, the hosts file on &#;Your Computer&#; has been modified with the following code:

arenaqq.us arenaqq.us

Since the hosts file was only modified on &#;Your Computer&#;, only that device will resolve the domain: arenaqq.us to the IP address:

Other devices, that do not have the hosts file modified, will resolve to the IP address: , found in the DNS zone&#;present in the name servers that the domain is pointed to.

 

How to Modify Your hosts File

Follow the sections below to learn how to perform a hosts file modification.

IMPORTANT: While reviewing this article, if you are unsure exactly what you need to do, we recommend watching the video above.

Run Notepad as administrator

To modify your hosts file, you will need to first run Notepad (or any other text editor available to you on the same computer) as administrator. This is because the hosts file is a system file and cannot be modified without elevated privileges. Note: If you are running Windows XP or lower, you won&#;t need to run it as administrator as this functionality only exists in Vista and above. Locate Notepad within your Start menu. If it is not already there, you can type &#;notepad&#; into the search box to show it. Then, right-click on it and click on &#;Run as administrator&#;.

Open Your hosts File

After you have Notepad up and running as administrator, you can then locate your hosts file and open it. While not all Windows versions store it in the same place, it is typically located within c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc and the filename is: hosts. If you do not see it there, other possibilities are as follows:

  • Windows 95/98/Me c:\windows
  • Windows NT//XP Pro c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc
  • Windows XP Home/Vista/Windows 7 c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
  • Windows 8 c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
  • Windows 10 c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

Now, you need to open your hosts file. With Notepad already open, click on &#;File&#;, then &#;Open&#;&#;. As the hosts file is not a standard .txt file that Notepad will look for by default, you will need to change the drop-down in the bottom right that says &#;Text Documents&#; to select &#;All Files&#;. Finally, navigate to the location of your hosts file and double-click on it to open the file using Notepad.

Find the IP Address Associated with Your Account

  1. Log into cPanel
  2. To the right, you should see a column of stats describing your account. Look for Server Information and click on that link.
    cPanel main
  3. Scroll down to where you see &#;Shared IP address&#;. If you have a dedicated IP, it will say &#;Dedicated IP&#; instead. This is the information that you will need for your hosts file mod.
    Server information

Edit Your hosts File

Now that you have the correct file open, it&#;s time to modify your hosts file. Within your hosts file, you should see something similar to the following:

# Copyright (c) Microsoft Corp. # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows. # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. # Each entry should be kept on an individual line. # The IP address should be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name. # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one space. # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual lines # or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol. # For example: # arenaqq.us # source server # arenaqq.us # x client host localhost
WARNING:Be sure to save a backup of your hostsfile prior to making changes! To do so, you may follow these steps:

 

  1. In Notepad, click on &#;File&#; and select &#;Save As&#;&#;
  2. In the file name, enter something you will remember such as hosts_file_
  3. Click &#;Save&#;

Using the information you have gathered you will add some lines to your hosts file. They will look something like this:

arenaqq.us arenaqq.us

NOTE: Be sure to replace with your actual IP address and arenaqq.us and arenaqq.us with your actual domain.

After making the change, click on &#;File&#;, then &#;Save&#;. You have now made your hosts file modification.

Additional Windows 8/10 Necessary Steps

Configuring Defender in Windows 8 to Modify Your hosts file

If you are using Windows 8, Windows Defender is running by default and it prevents you from being able to modify your hosts file. You will need to allow this file to be edited by going into Windows Defender and performing the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Windows Defender by hovering over the right corner to bring up the navigation bar. Click on the icon that appears to be a magnifying glass to start a search. Type in &#;Windows Defender&#;, click on the icon that appears. It will be labeled &#;Windows Defender.&#; Click on this icon and the application will launch.
  2. When Windows Defender opens, click on the tab labeled Settings.
  3. Next, type in the location of the hosts file based on the location of the Windows installation. Here&#;s the default path: c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
  4. Click on the Add button and you&#;ll see it added to the list beneath the file locations.
  5. Click on Save Changes in the bottom right and then close Windows Defender.
  6. The next step will be actually editing the file. As per the instructions above, you will need to edit the file as an Administrator. Hover over the right side again, and then search for &#;Notepad&#;. Open it as an administrator.
  7. Open the file as per your HOSTS file path.
  8. Make your edits, and click on SAVE by clicking on &#;File&#; to bring up the menu. This completes the HOSTS file edit in Windows 8.

Working with Windows 10 to Change Your Hosts File

When you are working with Windows 10, the main concern you will need to address before you begin is being able to modify your hosts file. You will need Administrator access in order to make the change. If you have any questions concerning administrator access please see Microsoft&#;s definition of an Administrator for Local accounts or speak with a local Windows administrator. In Microsoft&#;s documentation, local accounts means &#;on your computer.&#; Follow the steps below to quickly and easily make changes to the hosts file.

  1. Log in as your Administrator User
  2. Right-click on the Windows icon in the toolbar.
    text
  3. A pop-up menu will appear. Look for Powershell (Administrator) then click on this option.
    text
  4. You will see a Window notification pop-up asking if you wish to allow permission for the application to make a change. Click on Yes to continue.
    text
  5. When the prompt appears, type in Notepad. Since you are launching Notepad from the Powershell Administrator, it will launch the application with the appropriate administrator permissions.
    text
  6. In the Notepad menu, click on File, then click on Open. You will need to navigate to the folder that contains the hosts file. This is the typical path: c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc.
  7. If you do not have show hidden files enabled in your Windows File preferences, you will not see any files. However, type in Hosts, then hit enter. Notice that the file does not have an extension &#; it&#;s just &#;hosts.&#; This will bring up the Hosts file. Since the Hosts file is a system file, it will be hidden unless you set your Windows file preferences to show hidden files.
    text
  8. At this point, you will see the hosts file. As per the instructions above you will need to have the IP address of the server where you trying to point the URL. Make sure that you follow the example provided and put a space between the IP address and the domain name that you wish to use.
    text
  9. Click on File, then click on SAVE in order to save any changes that you may have made to the file.

As a precaution close the Notepad window and then re-load the hosts file per the beginning steps and double-check to see that your changes have been applied.

How do I know that it worked?

The easiest way to see that it worked is to just go to your domain. Does it show your new site as it should on our servers? If there were no changes to your site from when you moved it, you might need to run a ping test to ensure that it shows the correct IP.

Flushing Your DNS Cache

After you modify your hosts file, if your computer has cached your DNS, you will need to clear it. Luckily, we have an article that can teach you how to do just that:

How to use a Hosts file to improve your internet experience

Domain Name Servers (DNS) bind the internet together. They match machine-usable IPv4 and IPv6 addresses with human-readable domain names. It's the internet's equivalent of the phone book. But, while DNS is utterly essential to the internet, it's not the only way to connect IP addresses with domain names. You can also use Hosts files to connect mysterious IP addresses with meaningful domain names.

A Hosts file is a file that almost all computers and operating systems can use to map a connection between an IP address and domain names.

This file is an ASCII text file. It contains IP addresses separated by a space and then a domain name. Each address gets its own line. For example, is the IP address for CBS Interactive, ZDNet's parent company.

To place this in a Host file you'd enter the following line with a text editor, such as Windows' notepad or Linux's vi.

arenaqq.us

You never want to use a word processor to create or edit a Hosts file.

To be a valid Host files entry, you can't use website designations such as \, /, or http://. If you put a hash tag, #, at the line's start, you've disabled that entry. The Hosts file will ignore it and move to try find the site via DNS. When an entry is valid, your computer will use the address mapping in the Hosts file and not look it up in DNS.

Why bother when your DNS provider automatically looks up addresses for you? Well there are two main reasons.

First -- and this is minor -- when you go to a site that's in your Hosts file, it will resolve the address a few milliseconds faster than it would if your computer looked it up on DNS.

Using this to speed up your address resolution is too much trouble. If you're always visiting the same sites -- and most of us are -- you'd be better off using the lightweight caching Dnsmasq DNS server. This program automatically saves your DNS queries so that the next time you visit a site, your computer looks it up in the local Dnsmasq cache instead of wasting time going to DNS. This can save as much as 50 percent of your DNS lookup time.

Where Hosts files really shine is by letting you block ads, spyware sites, malware sites, and tracking sites. It does this by blocking your computer from connecting to annoying sites. Specifically, you can list the sites you never want to visit in the Hosts file and give them the loopback address of using IPv4 addressing or for IPv6 addressing.

What happens then is when a site, email, or what-have-you tries to steer you to a dodgy address, the Hosts file bounces it back and you're kept from going to the questionable domain.

Now you may ask yourself "how do you know which sites to avoid?" Good question, there are thousands of them.

Fortunately, there are three host files ready to go, which include a large list of known ads servers, tracking cookies sites, and other web locations you'll want to avoid. These are: How to make the internet not suck (as much), which despite the name is quite good, hpHosts, and MVPS Hosts. There's also the Hosts File Project, but unlike the others, which are frequently updated, Hosts File Project file hasn't been updated in over a year.

To use any of these, you must first make a backup of your existing Hosts file. On some operating systems you may not have one. I typically rename my existing file arenaqq.us

You then create a file named "hosts". You never use an extension with the name, such as arenaqq.us, you just use "hosts".

Where you put your new and improved hosts file depends on your operating system and its version. There are several ways to do this. For Windows, MVPS includes an installation routine. With the others, you simply copy and paste their master hosts file to the appropriate destination on your computer.

Before installing a hosts file on a Windows system that's not part of a domain, you must disable the Windows DNS Client Service. To do this, login with an administrative account and click Start, Run and type "arenaqq.us" and click OK. Double click DNS Client service entry, set its startup type to manual and stop the service.

The security program Windows Defender can also get in the way. It can detect changes to the Hosts file as malware activity. To prevent this from happening, you need to tell Defender to ignore the Hosts file. You do this with the following steps:

1. Open Windows Defender.

2. On the Settings tab, click Excluded files and locations.

3. Under File locations, click Browse.

4. Locate and then click the Hosts file. Note By default, the Hosts file is in the %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc folder.

5. Click Add, and then click Save changes.

6. Exit Windows Defender.

After you've done this, you can install the hosts file in one of the following locations:

For NT, Win2K and XP, use "C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" or "C:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts"

For Windows 7 and Vista, use "C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" or "%systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts"

For Windows 8.x and Windows 10, use "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts"

With Linux or MacOS X, you login as the root user, or use sudo, to move the master hosts file to "/etc/hosts" or on some systems to "/private/etc/hosts". For example, the shell command

sudo cp ~/hosts /etc/hosts"

will move the file "hosts" from your home directory to its home in the etc directory.

Once the host file is in place, you'll see the effects immediately. You don't need to reboot, or, for that matter, reopen your browsers.

You should see a much cleaner and faster internet experience. If you run into problems, revise the hosts file using a text editor if you can see which address is giving you trouble. For example, the how to make the internet not suck (as much) hosts file blocks all Windows 10 reporting domains by default. To fix this you can either delete the offending entry or you can place a # at the beginning of the line and your machine will ignore it.

If all else fails, you can just delete the new hosts file and replace it with the old one. You did make a backup of it right? Right!?

All this will take you a bit of time and effort, but I think you'll find that your increase in speed and privacy and drastic drop in ads will make it worth your time. Enjoy.

Security

A &#;host&#; name is used by TCP/IP to identify a TCP/IP device on the network. What is a TCP/IP device? Well, every device that uses TCP/IP protocol to communicate on a network is considered a TCP/IP host. A computer, printer, tablet, and routers are all examples of TCP/IP devices. The HOSTS file in Windows (and other operating systems) is used to map host names to IP addresses. This allows communication over a TCP/IP network.

In previous versions of Windows, the hosts file was very easy to edit. In fact, it was so easy to edit that the bad guys started to use the file to do bad things to our computers by adding entries without our permission or knowledge. Those of us who are concerned about computer security started to make the HOSTS file read-only but the bad guys found ways to remove the read-only attribute and still were able to mess with the HOSTS file. In this article I won&#;t focus on how to protect your HOSTS file, instead I want to show you how to edit the file in Windows 8/Windows because editing this file is not so easy anymore. Thanks to Microsoft, the HOSTS file is more secure in Windows 8 and requires additional steps.



In Windows 8/ you will get an access denied error when you edit the hosts file, even when you are logged in as an Administrator. You can also try to edit the hosts file by starting the Notepad as an Administrator while logged in as an Administrator. You will still get an access denied error. The only way I know is to save the file to another location and then copy it back to the original location. By default the HOSTS file resides in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc folder. The HOSTS file is one of the few files in Windows that don&#;t have a file extension. When you edit the file make sure you do not save it as a .txt file or else it won&#;t work. Here&#;s the step-by-step procedure for editing the HOSTS file in Windows 8/

Editing the Hosts File

  1. Start Windows File Explorer and go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc folder.
  2. Make a backup copy of hosts file by simply copying the hosts file and then pasting it. It will add a file called hosts_2. You might want to rename it something like arenaqq.us or arenaqq.usal.
  3. Right-click the hosts file and select Open with.
    HostsFile01
  4. Select Notepad from the choice of programs displayed for you. If you do not see Notepad in the list, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click the hyperlink Look for another app on this PC.
    HostsFile02
  5. Enter the IP address and the host name for each host you want to add to this file. The graphic below shows an example of what the entry would look like. Do not use the address and server name in the example. It is only used for demonstration purposes.
    HostsFile03
  6. Make sure there is no pound symbol (#) at the beginning of the entry or else it will be considered a comment and will be ignored by the system.
  7. On the menu, click File, Save.
  8. Change the Save as type option to All Files (*.*) so that the file will be saved without an extension. The default option is Text Documents (*.txt) and it will add the .txt extension to the file, which we don&#;t want.
    HostsFile04
  9. When you click Save you will get a message similar to the one below that you don&#;t have permission to save the file in this location. Click Yes and then save it to another location, like desktop or Documents folder.

    WARNING!Just before you click Save make sure the Save as type option is set to All Files (*.*). I have noticed that when I click Yes it keeps the Save as type option as All Files (*.*) but it changes the file name to arenaqq.us, which I don&#;t want. Delete the .txt extension so your screen looks like the one in step 7 above and then click Save.

    HostsFile05

  10. Close Notepad.
  11. Navigate to the location where you saved the file. You may notice that even though you told Windows not to use a file extension it ignored your instruction and saved the file with a .txt extension. This is a Windows 8/ (cough) &#;feature.&#;
  12. Rename the file to hosts. Do not forget the s at the end. You will see the following prompt that if you change a file name extension, the file might become unstable. Click Yes.
    HostsFile06
  13. Copy the hosts file and then navigate back to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc folder.
  14. Paste the file in the etc folder.
  15. When prompted, replace the file with the newer file.

7 Ways to Use Hosts File on Your Computer

While the DNS remains the standard domain name resolution service over the internet, the hosts file overrides the DNS servers. Therefore, you can use the hosts file for various reasons including redirecting or blocking websites, creating local domains and sites shortcuts among other purposes.

1. Editing Hosts File to Block a website

  • To block any site from 8 or 10 file, you only need to map the hostname to the localhost IP () or a full-zero’s IP address () followed by the sites domain name.
  • For instance, to block users from access Twitter, add one of the following entries at the end of the hosts file:

arenaqq.us arenaqq.us
arenaqq.us arenaqq.us

Block Websites in Hosts File

Note: ensure there is a space between the IP address and the hostname and no ‘#’ before the IP as this would deactivate the entry.

2. Re-directing a Website Using Hosts File

You can also redirect the website to a particular domain. For example, you may edit the hosts file such that whenever a user tries to access Twitter, they are redirected to the company’s site or any other website.

  • First, you need to know the IP for your target website.
  • Then use the hosts file to map the IP to arenaqq.us To redirect Twitter to arenaqq.us IP addressenter “ arenaqq.us arenaqq.us” at the end of the hosts file and save.

What is a hosts File Modification?

A hosts file modification is a simple tweak that is used to &#;trick&#; your computer into resolving to a specific IP. This is especially useful when developing your site on our server when your nameservers are not pointed to us yet. This is necessary when you are working with domain-name-dependent software (ie: Content Management System (CMS), such as Joomla! or WordPress).

How Does a hosts File Modification Work?

DNS vs. hosts File Modification info-graphic depicting the path of routing a domain to an IP from different devices after performing a hosts file modification on your computer.

The image (to the right) depicts the process of resolving a domain to an IP address using various devices. In the image, the hosts file on &#;Your Computer&#; has been modified with the following code:

arenaqq.us arenaqq.us

Since the hosts file was only modified on &#;Your Computer&#;, only that device will resolve the domain: arenaqq.us to the IP address:

Other devices, that do not have the hosts file modified, will resolve to the IP address:found in the DNS zone&#;present in the name servers that the domain is pointed to.

 

How to Modify Your hosts File

Follow the sections below to learn how to perform a hosts file modification.

IMPORTANT: While reviewing this article, if you are unsure exactly what you need to do, we recommend watching the video above.

Run Notepad as administrator

To modify your hosts file, you will need to first run Notepad (or any other text editor available to you on the same computer) as administrator. This is because the hosts file is a system file and cannot be modified without elevated privileges. Note: If you are running Windows XP or lower, you won&#;t need to run it as administrator as this functionality only exists in Vista and above. Locate Notepad within your Start menu. If it is not already there, you can type &#;notepad&#; into the search box to show it. Then, right-click on it and click on &#;Run as administrator&#.

Open Your hosts File

After you have Notepad up and running as administrator, you can then locate your hosts file and open it. While not all Windows versions store it in the same place, it is typically located within c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc and the filename is: hosts. If you do not see it there, other possibilities are as follows:

  • Windows 95/98/Me c:\windows
  • Windows NT//XP Pro c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc
  • Windows XP Home/Vista/Windows 7 c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
  • Windows 8 c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
  • Windows 10 c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

Now, you need to open your hosts file. With Notepad already open, click on &#;File&#;, then &#;Open&#;&#. As the hosts file is not a standard .txt file that Notepad will look for by default, you will need to change the drop-down in the bottom right that says &#;Text Documents&#; to select &#;All Files&#. Finally, navigate to the location of your hosts file and double-click on it to open the file using Notepad.

Find the IP Address Associated with Your Account

  1. Log into cPanel
  2. To the right, you should see a column of stats describing your account. Look for Server Information and click on that link.
    cPanel main
  3. Scroll down to where you see &#;Shared IP address&#. If you have a dedicated IP, it will say &#;Dedicated IP&#; instead. This is the information that you will need for your hosts file mod.
    Server information

Edit Your hosts File

Now that you have the correct file open, it&#;s time to modify your hosts file. Within your hosts file, you should see something similar to the following:

# Copyright (c) Microsoft Corp. # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows. # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. # Each entry should be kept on an individual line, 3 Simple Method to Find or Edit the Host File in Windows 7 . # The IP address should be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name. # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one space. # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual lines # or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol. # For example: # arenaqq.us # source server # arenaqq.us # x client host localhost
WARNING:Be sure to save a backup of your hostsfile prior to making changes! To do so, 8 or 10, you may follow these steps:

 

  1. In Notepad, click on &#;File&#; and select &#;Save As&#;&#;
  2. In the file name, enter something you will remember such as hosts_file_
  3. Click &#;Save&#;

Using the information you have gathered you will add some lines to your hosts file. They will look something like this:

arenaqq.us arenaqq.us

NOTE: Be sure to replace with your actual IP address and arenaqq.us and arenaqq.us with your actual domain.

After making the change, click on &#;File&#;, then &#;Save&#. You have now made your hosts file modification.

Notice that the file does not have an extension &#; it&#;s just &#;hosts.&#; This will bring up the Hosts file. Since the Hosts file is a system file, it will be hidden unless you set your Windows file preferences to show hidden files.
    text
  8. At this point, you will see the hosts file. As per the instructions above you will need to have the IP address of the server where you trying to point the URL. Make sure that you follow the example provided and put a space between the IP address and the domain name that you wish to use.
    text
  9. Click on File, then click on SAVE in order to save any changes that you may have made to the file.

As a precaution close the Notepad window and then re-load the hosts file per the beginning steps and double-check to see that your changes have been applied.

How do I know that it worked?

This guide shows you how to edit hosts file in Windows 10 and Windows 11 easily without any additional system 8 or 10. The hosts file is an important system file that maps the host/website names with its IP addresses. Basically, it translates the hostname to IP and vice versa. So browsing and accessing network websites and shares by the name becomes easy by avoiding DNS server requests or remembering the relevant IP addresses.

We can manually edit DNS names and IP addresses for specific websites in the hosts file which will be helpful in several ways. The hosts file is a simple text file without any file extensions.

Edit Hosts File

We used to modify this file by ‘edit’  DOS command in earlier Windows operating systems, but the edit DOS command is not included in Windows 11 and 10/ anymore. You will get the following error message when you try the edit command in recent Operating Systems.

“ ‘edit’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.”

This is because of edit DOS command requires bit arenaqq.us which will not work on the 64 Bit versions of Windows Operating Systems. So how to edit the hosts file here? we can use the built-in Notepad program for this purpose.

Two Methods to Edit Hosts File in Windows 11/10

In Windows Operating Systems, the hosts file is located here,

C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc

Method

1) Open the command prompt as administrator.

Search ‘cmd’ on Windows 11 or 10 and right-click on the Command Prompt and select ‘Run as administrator.’ (This is an important step).

2) It will probably open from C:\Windows\System32, then type ‘cd drivers’ and ENTER.

Now type ‘cd etc’, ENTER as shown below. This is to go to the location where the host file is located.

Browse the location

3) Make sure you are in the correct folder path, it should be C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc. Type ‘notepad hosts’ to open the file in notepad.

4) We assume that you know the content of the file. Type the IP address of the domain/hostname and DNS name of it. You can see the examples in the same file.

Here is an example, Let’s say if I need to block Facebook on a PC, I can enter the wrong IP address and map it to arenaqq.us as we showed here.

Once you have modified the file with appropriate settings, click Save from File menu.

Important Note: If you haven’t opened the notepad from the ‘Run as Administrator’ command prompt, then you can’t save the Hosts file in the above case.

Why Modify Hosts file in Windows OS or other Operating Systems?

This is an advanced user action and most of the time you do not need to touch the hosts file. But, here are the possible scenarios you may need to modify.

  1. Block a website by giving the wrong IP. So, the PC will look for wrong IP for particular website and ultimatly it will not work.
  2. You are testing a website which was migrated to a different host. Before changing the public DNS entries, you can modify the hosts file on your local PC with the new IP and test.
  3. Unintentional changes by any programs or virus attacks to the hosts file. In this case, you need to clear or edit the hosts file to default settings.
  4. Manipulate the DNS entries. If you need to resolve a name to IP which can’t be done by the DNS servers, the modifying the hosts file is the only one option.

Summary

This article helps you reset the Hosts file back to the default.

What's the Hosts file

The Hosts file is used by the operating system to map human-friendly hostnames to numerical Internet Protocol (IP) addresses which identify and locate a host in an IP network. The hosts file is one of several system resources that address network nodes in a computer network and is a common part of an operating system's IP implementation.

The Hosts file contains lines of text consisting of an IP address in the first text field followed by one or more host names. Each field is separated by white space (Tabs are often preferred for historical reasons, but spaces are also used). Comment lines may be included, and they are indicated by a hash character (#) in the first position of such lines. Entirely blank lines in the file are ignored.

If the Hosts file is changed from default, resetting it can help resolve some connectivity issues.
