Quick Review

"Manage your Hosts file with ease."

HostMan is the perfect program for someone who’s not a computer expert, yet he needs to manage the Windows hosts file. This tool was designed to make the process easier and intuitive.

The hosts file manages domain names and IPs. Whenever you’re typing an address in your browser, Windows will check first of an IP has been assigned to domain name, so that it doesn’t have to look for it on the Internet. This speeds up the process for the Operating System.

The same process is sometimes used by malware to hijack popular sites. For instance, if a program modified the hosts file, it could redirect all your requests to Facebook for instance, to a different site where the attackers could steal your credentials. That’s why editing and managing the hosts file is quite important.

Here’s what HostsMan can do for you:

  • You can enable (if you need to tell your system where to look for certain domains, very useful for developers) or disable the hosts file altogether (if you’re concerned about system safety)
  • Update (or auto-update) your file online
  • Merge two or more host files together
  • Easy to use editor
  • Creates backups for the file that you can restore at a later point
  • Scans for possible hijacks and notifies you if there’s anything to worry about
  • You can resolve troublesome domain names (perhaps the domain name you were using expired, but you can still see it if you know the IP address and the site is still on the server)

If you need to edit the hosts file and you don’t quite know where to locate it or how to modify it, HostsMan is the perfect choice for you.
