Warning: This is not your standard blocking-list!
-! That HOSTS-file is huge! (~50MB) # Android-apps (AdGuard, Blokada) will only partially load it. # Try using it as an OS HOSTS-file (Android - root!, Windows - pre-disable 'DNS Client' service!). -! Blocks: -! Some social-networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pintrest, ...). -! Some 3'rd-party comment-services (Disqus, Spot.im, ...). -! An extended (!) list of stuff other lists blocks as well (ads, analytics, fishing, malwares). -! Annoying stuff or websites. Just my personal opinion. # If you are using this list and find-out your favorite website is blocked - open an issue. +~ Google (except for the ads-domains) and WhatsApp (although it's Facebook's) are cool . # Using those lists will greatly privacy and speed-up browsing on any operation-system. # I suggest you also set-up 'AdGuard-DNS' as your DNS. Works best in your home-router!
Note: I no longer distribute HOSTS with the 127.0.0.1 prefix. Use 'hosts0.txt' or 'hosts0_with_localhost.txt' links instead.
Use it anyway you like (link-to, download, copy, distribute,...) Direct-URL to the lists:
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/USERNAME/hosts/master/build/hosts_adblock_anti_annoyances_hide.txt https://raw.githubusercontent.com/USERNAME/hosts/master/build/hosts_adblock_anti_annoyances_block.txt https://raw.githubusercontent.com/USERNAME/hosts/master/build/hosts_adblock_anti_annoyances_block_inline_script.txt https://raw.githubusercontent.com/USERNAME/hosts/master/build/hosts_adblock_anti_annoyances_style_inject.txt
You can either use
USERNAME(links/folder-structure might be change some day), or fork the repository and use your own github-username.
What are all of those links?
_raw__hosts.txtfile is just a raw list of the host-domains (without any prefix),
127.0.0.1prefix for each line
0.0.0.0prefix for each line,
hosts0_with_localhost.txtuses the same prefixes but adds an additional entries for machine's self-
hosts_adblock.txthas the same content as
_raw__hosts.txtbuilt with an additional uBlock-filter format file-headers.
You may download the whole repository in a zip file (about 200MB though!):
Aria2C or similar parallel-download-manager is advised!
Once you've fetched the repository (by either simply download it or by fork-and-clone), you may edit it and generate new build. Custom lists:
It is very easy to generate a new "build",
There are no dependencies!
Only thing needed is any version of NodeJS on your machine.
For example, you can get a single exe for Windows in https://nodejs.org/download/nightly. Just choose a version and browse
To generate a new "build", delete the build folder, and run your NodeJS with
_builder.js. You may use
I'm not being pa!d for it or anything,
but if you want to protect yourself from ads and other malicious domains,
I strongly advise you'll change your home (or work) router's DNS to AdGuard's DNS.
It is free, and it will block ads in a similar way to the way the HOSTS file works,
0.0.0.0 to several (although not as much as mine) domains,
instead of actual-resolving into IP. You can still use HOSTS and AdBlocking-browser-extensions,
this is just another way you can help all the clients (smartphones, smart-TVs, computers,...)
of your home WiFi, without the needs to root Android devices, or install anything.
The DNS addresses you should change into are:
126.96.36.199. Google AdGuard-DNS for more information.
