Software update: HostsMan 4.5 build 102

One way to keep malware and advertisements out is to block the computers that serve this content. This can be done by including the IP numbers of these machines in the host file and pointing them to localhost. Keeping the host file up-to-date is a time-consuming job, but HostsMan can help with that. This free program can update current lists of well-known websites like fetch and combine with the already present host file. Furthermore, it can check the host file for wrong, duplicate or malicious lines, there is a built-in editor and the dns cache can be cleared. Version 4.5 of HostsMan has been released and the following changes and improvements have been made to it:


  • Import exclusion list by dropping file to the “Exclusion List” window;


  • Exclusion List window is now resizable;
  • “Import/Export…” menu item replaced with “Import Hosts…” and “Export Hosts…” items;
  • Other minor UI improvements;


  • Minor bugs.
