then only x.www.domain.cn is blocked, not somethingnotwww.domain.cn
So, how should my hosts file look like?
Which of them is correct? (sorry for perhaps being stupid)
3 & 4 would work if there wasnt a space between the /0.0.0.0 or 127.0.0.1. if u use /0.0.0.0 ull need to have duplicate lines for each domain, with the second one having /:: if u want ipv6 coverage, meanwhile #2 with a single / at the end covers both ipv4 & ipv6. 127.0.0.1 i dont recommend cause it can cause long delays especially with https connections. cause a client device still sees a ping or response from localhost (127.0.0.1), but theres no web page content, so it keeps trying and trying till a timeout. when a device sees 0.0.0.0 or NXDOMAIN (single / at the end with nothing after it = NXDOMAIN) it knows to stop trying instantly _________________ LATEST FIRMWARE(S)
we just do it since we do not like any restrictions enforced by stupid cocaine snorting managers
