Start64!New version! - An automatic hosts file import, deduplicate/normalize, & sorter for custom hosts file generation + a hosts management system (that's a self-contained single multithreaded executable file created in Borland Delphi XE2 32-bit &/or 64-bit code) that runs on Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/VISTA/Windows 7/Server 2008 (possibly beyond):


INSTALL - Extract its self-extracting installer from the zipfile 1st. Then run the self extractor, extracting its files to ANY folder you like (usually one you create for it, doesn't matter where, but you MUST run it as administrator for FULL functionality (simple & the "read me" tab shows how easy THAT is to do via rightclick shortcut properties "advanced" section)). Then make the admin rights ready shortcut to either the 32-bit model or the 64-bit model and run it.

Custom hosts files gain me the following list of benefits (Summary of where custom hosts files are extremely useful):

  1. Protect you vs. known malicious sites/servers (beyond malicious adbanners: See 2-6 next)
  2. Protect you vs. fastflux using botnet attacks + stop their communications back to their C&C servers
  3. Protect you vs. dynamic dns using botnet attacks + stop their communications back to their C&C servers
  4. Protect you vs. DGA/domain generation algorithm using botnet attacks + stop their communications back to their C&C servers
  5. Protect you vs. downed DNS servers (adds reliability)
  6. Protect you vs. DNS redirect poisoned dns servers
  7. Protect you vs. DNS Amplification attacks
  8. Get you past a dnsbl (dns block list) you may not agree with
  9. Added "anonymity": Keeping you off dns request logs
  10. Block trackers
  11. Block spam mails sources
  12. Block phishing mails sources
  13. Speed you up for websurfing not only by adblocking but also hardcoding favorite sites
  14. Truly UNIVERSAL PROTECTION for ANY webbound application (think stand-alone email programs, for example & since any OS, even on smartphones, usually has a BSD drived IP stack).
  15. Give you direct, easily notepad/texteditor controlled data for all of the above
  16. More screen "real estate" (since no more adbanners appear onscreen eating up CPU, Memory, & other forms of I/O too - bonus!).
  17. Faster & MORE EFFICIENT operation vs. browser plugins (which "layer on" ontop of Ring 3/RPL 3/usermode browsers, increasing their slower usermode messagepassing overheads slowing them more & are generally written in slower INTERPRETED languages (e.g. AdBlock = python/perl/javascript)- Whereas by way of comparison, the hosts file operates @ the Ring 0/RPL 0/Kernelmode of operation (far faster) as a filter for the IP stack itself which is written in C & Assembly language (run directly @ Operating System startup with the IP stack itself, making browser/usermode advertiser owned 'solutions' like Ghostery + AdBlock, advertisers crippled http://techcrunch.com/2013/07/06/google-and-others-reportedly-pay-adblock-plus-to-show-you-ads-anyway/ & redundant)).
  18. Custom hosts files work on ANY & ALL webbound apps (browser plugins do not).
  19. Custom hosts files offer a better, faster, more efficient way, & safer way to surf the web
  20. Hosts files do all of those things above & block ads (better than addons) more efficiently in cpu cycles + memory usage https://blog.mozilla.org/nnethercote/2014/05/14/adblock-pluss-effect-on-firefoxs-memory-usage/
