COMPILED FROM:

This list of hosts is compiled from real server logs on my own servers where I run a number of very busy web sites.

This list originated from the list of bad referrers domain lists for:

NGINX ULTIMATE BAD BOT BLOCKER or Get the APACHE ULTIMATE BAD BOT BLOCKER

The list has now been separated from those projects as it contains certain domains which do not actually belong in a hosts file.


WHAT IS A HOSTS FILE?

A hosts file, named hosts (with no file extension), is a plain-text file used by all operating systems to map hostnames to IP addresses.

In most operating systems, the hosts file is preferential to DNS. Therefore if a domain name is resolved by the hosts file, the request never leaves your computer.

Having a smart hosts file goes a long way towards blocking malware, adware, ransomware, porn and other nuisance web sites.

A hosts file like this causes any lookups to any of the listed domains to resolve back to your localhost so it prevents any outgoing connections to the listed domains.


WHERE DO I PUT THIS ON MY COMPUTER?

To modify your current hosts file, look for it in the following places and modify it with a text editor.

Linux, Mac OS X, iOS, Android: /etc/hosts folder.

Windows Systems: %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts folder.


UNDERSTANDS PUNYCODE / IDN DOMAIN NAMES

A lot of lists out there put funny domains into their hosts file. Your hosts file and DNS will not understand this. This list uses converted domains which are in the correct DNS format to be understood by any operating system.

For instance The domain:

lifehacĸer.com (note the K)

actually translates to:

xn--lifehacer-1rb.com

You can do an nslookup on any operating system and it will resolve correctly.

nslookup xn--lifehacer-1rb.com

	origin = dns1.yandex.net
	mail addr = iskalko.yandex.ru
	serial = 2016120703
	refresh = 14400
	retry = 900
	expire = 1209600
	minimum = 14400
xn--lifehacer-1rb.com	mail exchanger = 10 mx.yandex.net.
Name:	xn--lifehacer-1rb.com
Address: 78.110.60.230
xn--lifehacer-1rb.com	nameserver = dns2.yandex.net.
xn--lifehacer-1rb.com	text = "v=spf1 redirect=_spf.yandex.net"
xn--lifehacer-1rb.com	nameserver = dns1.yandex.net.

Stop Bad Bot and Bad Referrers from gaining access to your web sites.
