HostsCK is a Network & Internet::Other software developed by rediSoft. After our trial and test, the software was found to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for HostsCK: HostsCK is a tiny tool that enables you to access, read and edit Windows' host file so that you can sort out the requests and ensure less unsolicited content makes its way into your system.
Allows you to update the host file and save the blocked sites
Following a quick setup, you need to open that program with Administrator rights and close the Windows service responsible for the DNS requests. The idea behind the app is to enable you to read the content in the host file easier as it includes different font colors that you can customize accordingly.
The app comes with a function that takes you to mvps.org or similar websites where you can check out a detailed list of blocked sites. Therefore, you can easily download and update your host file, not before you make a backup for it, as recommended. Once you update the host file, you can create lists with blocked and allowed sites that the DNS accounts for.
You can revert back to the default host file settings with just one click
While it can be argued that you might as well install ad blocking plugins to your default browsers, these extensions can eat up your system resources. In addition, let's not forget that some apps can make outgoing requests even when you are not browsing the web. In case you change your mind, you can reverse all modifications with just one click.
All in all, HostsCK is a tool that provides you with a convenient way to view the host file and manage the websites that are allowed or blocked without having to worry that other apps can make modifications to it later on.
Saving a selected site to the saved list now works as expected. If language file updates are essential they will be downloaded when HostsCK is updated. There is now an option to download the help file from the settings Full view mode added to the textb
