when you type a domain name in your browser that you wish to connect to, your application must first convert it to an IP address that it will use to connect to.The way these hostnames are resolved to their mapped IP address is called Domain Name Resolution. On almost all operating systems whether they be Apple, Linux, Unix, Netware, or Windows the majority of resolutions from domain names to IP addresses are done through a procedure called DNS. DNS stands for Domain Name System and is the standard domain name resolution service used on the Internet , There is another way to resolve domain names without using the Domain Name System, and that is by using your HOSTS file. Almost every operating system that communicates via TCP/IP, the standard of communication on the Internet, has a file called the HOSTS file. This file allows you to create mappings between domain names and IP addresses Another way to think of a hosts file is as an address translator and redirector.

Has a significant problem.
My hosts file is compacted for efficiency (9 records per line). Bluelifehosts shows the first record on each line as the host name and the rest as comments.
please add "DOH to resolve"
in censored country is necessary
Yes it works.
I used to use hostman. It doesn’t work any more for some reason. Maybe it’s Windows 11 problem.
Does this work on W11?
Thank you for this app! Can you add a DNS logger to add more sites, like adaway does for Android? Thanks in advance.
Can you add the ability to change the position of entries (move up, move down) or drag and drop?
There is always an Administrator Account
I think it was removed in this version for security reasons.
command IP cannot be customized
hEdit_x64.exe /A example.com 184.108.40.206
win10 don’t have administrator
I have been using this for many years and it has been of great help!
