Dns modification

Hi, my computer teacher recently made it to when you typed in addictinggames.com, it sent you to the school server. I was wondering if I could do the same thing, but on my PC and if so, how?

OpenDNS | DNS-Based Web Security can be one way.
Course its still good to use OpenDNS for your primary DNS to the internet anyways.

Editing your hosts file may be another way?

Sounds like they don't want you playing addicting games. If so, is it a good idea to circumvent this? Will this cause you any grief?

Im out of school now. I just want to do this to mess with people.


I opened the host file and it said it was a sample. I edited it anyway, and it didn't work.

Your computer instructor didn't do anything to your computer. It sounds like he had the network admin at the school redirect that url/ip address to the school's website.

You may be able to replicate that on your router, if it supports that kind of thing.

He is the network admin and he only changed it on this one kids computer because he would play games all the time. He didn't care if we played after his lecture.

Right now, I am trying to make it were I type in google.com and it sends me to facebook.com. I opened the hosts file with administrator privileges, and at the bottom, I added the ip address for facebook and then the domain name "google.com" like this.

# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
