Surf the web faster with the hosts file

Surf the web faster with the hosts file

One way to surf the web faster is that instead of having to search the ip of a website through DNS, we skip this step.

First we must get the real IP of the website, ex: ping clickzoom.net

Open the hosts file on your Windows machine (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts) or Linux (/etc/hosts).
Add this line to the end of the file with ip and domain: 192.16 .... domain.com
Save.

As such, every time you visit the site, the computer will prefer to browse in the hosts file first, if the site has ip then it will not have to do DNS lookup step to get ip again.
