In the company LAN, there will be provided to the user server. However, due to the local area network is rarely set up DNS server, access to these servers, to enter the hard to remember the IP address. It's a lot of trouble for a lot of people. Each server can be given an easy to remember name, and then set up the IP mapping in the Hosts, so that after the visit, just enter the name of the server on the line.

There are a lot of sites without the consent of the user will be a variety of plug-ins installed in your computer, some of which may be Trojan or virus. For these sites we can use Hosts to map the domain name of the site to the wrong IP or the local computer's IP, so you don't have to visit it. In the WINDOWS system, is the IP address of the local computer, is the wrong IP address.

If we are in Hosts, write the following: A
# to shield the site # to shield the site B
, A B and computer domain, it resolves to the machine IP or false IP, reached A and B to block the site.
