Description

Hosts is a system preference pane to manage your hosts file.
Hosts add a preference pane to your system preferences which lets you toggle your host file entries on and off, as well as add and remove them.

Uploader's Note: Very helpful for streamlining the installation process of cracked software, especially Adobe apps, which may not work if installer finds adobe entries in your hosts file. With this prefpane, simply untoggle the entries until after installation is complete, then check them off again to block connections with your firewall!

Hosts.prefpane likes to keep your hosts file clean. When an entry is toggled off, it is not commented out in the hosts file, but instead stored in the app's preferences storage. This means you will have to uncomment all your unused host entries and untoggle them in the prefpane if you want to use them. Comments are treated as comments and will never show up in the list of host entries!

Of course Hosts.prefpane will detect edits you made to the /etc/hosts directly and merge them into the listing.

Backups of your hosts file is made in ~/Library/Application Support/Hosts. The backup or your hosts file from before you started using Hosts.prefpane is called hosts.orig and each session a backup is made called hosts.session.

The default host entries that are needed by the OS are hidden and can not be edited using Hosts.prefpane.
