Improve your Internet speed!!!

When we type an address in the address bar, what our computer does is actually contact a DNS server. DNS server is responsible for converting the webaddress like to something like and pass it back to our computer. Our computer then sends the webpage request directly to (Imaginary web and ip address are used here).

So if we could map the ip address and web address of the webpages you visit frequently and tell it to the computer then the first step of communicating with the DNS server will not be required. So that means faster browsing...

Now how to do that...

First open the file called hosts in a notepad..
The location of the hosts file would be \\Windows\system32\drivers\etc
If you scroll down the file, you ll be able to see something like this localhost
Do not (R) do not delete the line... or any thing in it.
