    Host File Project

    Well we all hate ads right. Well my mission is to help do something about them. It may have been done allready but I cant seem to find it so if it has it was not done well enough so I am going to do it again.


    To get a list of all the ad servers or any other crap server out there and make a big master host list to deny these servers for users. What I ask is that if you have some entries post them here and make sure to take check out of automatically parse urls. When I get a big enough list I am going to upload it so a site and then everyone who ever wants to block ads via host file all they will have to do is download the file and copy and paste to their file.

    ANyways here is what I got so far:

    heres mine, its actually the one that you get if you download kazaa lite (www.kazaalite.com)
    its about 64k so i'll attach it as i dont want to make the post too big

    for those of you using XP who arent sure of where this goes

    it goes in c:\*your windows dir*\system32\drivers\etc\

    for other versions of win like 98, me, 95 etc

    goes in c:\*windoze directory*\

    this is a great idea .. a guy on here on a guest account "dave martel" posted a link to a site with a huge list .. here it is.


    p.s. I'm new to the hole host file thing, is it ok if the same thing is in there twice or will it mess up? I'm asking so if I cut and paste other peoples lists.

    Great idea Euclid! I will see what I can come up with for you when I go to work. Gunder: a duplication shouldn't cause any problems for you. Just remember that the larger the hosts file is, the longer it takes to parse it, and this one looks as though it's going to be pretty big, eh?
    Opinions are like holes - everybody\'s got\'em.

    Because I belive this to be a worthy and noble cause, I have written a small program in C++ to aid us in this quest. Below is the source code for a program which finds all entries in a file, sorts them, and eliminates duplicates. It has been designed to find entries in a file that is a product of several cut-and-pasted hosts files, so it strips out comments and places all entries in a standard format. It relies on the DOS SORT command to sort the file prior to eliminating duplicates. If anyone would like to write a sort routine for this program, feel free. That's not my strong point. :-) I have also attached the binary for those of you who lack a compiler, although it is rather large(120K). Don't hang me out to dry for the bad style, I wrote it quickly. Suggestions are more than welcome. :D

    Here is the source:


    HOSTS File parser and sorter.
    Used to cut and paste from several source hosts files, place all entries
    in a standard format and eliminate duplicates. Relies on DOS SORT command and is
    therefore incompatible with other platforms. Suggestions and additions are welcome.
    Platform dependent code has been marked with asterisks.
    Released open-source.


    #include <iostream>
    #include <fstream>
    using namespace std;

    int main(int argc, char *argv[]){
    char * cur_line = new char [200];
    char * prev_line = new char [200];
    char * to_write = new char [200];
    char * strptr = new char [200];
    ifstream input;
    ofstream output;
    ifstream tempinfile;
    ofstream tempoutfile;


    printf("Beginning formatting...\n");
    strptr = strrchr(cur_line,' ');

    if(strptr && cur_line[0] != '#'){
    printf("Formatting complete... beginning DOS sort...\n");

    system("sort temp.txt /o temp2.txt");

    printf("Sorting complete... beginning duplicate removal...\n");

    prev_line = strdup(cur_line);
    longest_string = strlen(cur_line) > strlen(prev_line) ? strlen(cur_line) : strlen(prev_line);
    if(longest_string > 0 && strncmp(cur_line,prev_line,longest_string)){


    system("del temp*.txt");

    printf("Duplicate removal complete...\nProgram complete.\n");

    // delete[] cur_line;
    // delete[] prev_line;
    // delete[] to_write;
    // delete[] strptr;
    return 0;

    P.S. If anyone can show me how to get these delete[] statements to work without crashing the program, I would be forever in your debt. I can't figure it out to save my own life. :confused:

    OK, here's what I've got so far. 14,757 unique hosts in here all told , but I'm sure there's more out there. Kudos to Euclid for the idea. This can get bigger yet, folks...

    The localhost entry appears on line #10279 because of the sort. Oops. Placing another one at the top should be sufficient.

    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each #

    about a year ago i attempted this here with the focus on porn. my reasoning was that netizens should protect the internet and not government regulation. i got no support so i figured either nobody wanted to 'share' the porn links they had, or nobody gave a ****.

    if your going to include porn sites in your file it would be very easy for a pre-teen to get a good list of sites to visit, if they were so inclined. it you put then in an executable that wrote the sites to be blocked to the hosts file not many could find the info. those that could are smart enough to find what they want anyway.

    attached is an example of what i mean. this will write all of localhost's posted list to c:\temp\test. this version appends to a file or creates it if it dosn't exist to show how updates could be supplied. so if you run it twice, you'll get the list twice. seperated by "##".

    i like your idea and ill do everything i can to help!
