Author(s):



Introduction
HostAdmin is a Firefox Addon , that helps you modify the Hosts file , switch domain-ip mapping. HostAdmin can understand your Hosts file via a enhanced Hosts file syntax.

In additional, HostAdmin refresh your DNS cache automaticlly whenever you change your Hosts file, even manually.

How does HostAdmin analyze the Hosts file
  • Common
  • IP DOMAIN [#COMMENT]

    127.0.0.1 localhost #comment here

    when comment is 'hide' (case-insensitive), that line would not display in menu.

  • Grouping

  • #==== Project 1
    #127.0.0.1 localhost1
    127.0.0.1 localhost2
    127.0.0.1 localhost3
    #====

    #==== Project 2
    #127.0.0.1 localhost1
    #127.0.0.1 localhost2
    #127.0.0.1 localhost3
    #====
