Dear Readers,

Today I want to share with you a very useful tool to instantly switch your Windows/Ubuntu hosts file. If you’re unfamiliar with the term ‘hosts file’, this WIKI should help.

Anyway, by using this tool you can immediately switch to a new hosts file, by at most two clicks of mouse (actually, it is one click and one double-clicks :P). No installation needed, but you will need a full-write access to your hosts file.

Other than that, depending on your Operating System, you might need:

  • Windows:
    • .Net framework 2.0 and upper.
  • Linux:
    • Mono 1.2 and upper
    • root access
    • nscd Service
    • ifconfig commmand

Here is how the main interface looks like:

Really simple right?

Interested? You can visit and download it at: Host Profiles @ Codeplex . It’s FREE! And it’s open source too.

Have a great weekend everyone, Cheers!
