Redirect URLs to 127.0.0.1 in HOSTS file 1.4.19

This script can be used as a quick way to block access to a URL. The provided URLs (comma separated) are placed in a 'ControlUp' section of the HOSTS file, where they are directed to 127.0.0.1. As a result DNS lookup of these URLs always point to home, essentially preventing access to a website unless you know the IP number. After this the command IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS is run to clear the DNS cache. tags:ip blocking, hosts
