Hostess is a free utility for maintaining your HOSTS file. Unlike many HOSTS file utilities, Hostess is geared towards ad-blocking rather than IP address resolution. Hostess stores your host entries in a database that is indexed to eliminate duplicates and make searching fast and easy. It also allows you to group these hosts for efficiency and ease of maintenance.
Installing the program is also easy: just create a directory, extract the contents of the zip file into it and create a shortcut to Hostess.exe. No registry changes are made, and all program settings and data are stored in the program directory.
- I statically linked the parts I needed from midas.dll into the program, making it no longer necessary. You can delete the dll (from the Hostess directory) after upgrading.
