How to own microsoft.com





mustaq
Well, okay. Of course you can't actually own microsoft.com, but heres a little trict to try and impress your friends

Goto My Computer

Go into your hard drive and goto:

E:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

When there open the file:

hosts

In there write any domain you wish, at the bottom.

For example

127.0.0.1 www.microsoft.com
127.0.0.1 www.yahoo.com

That will point it to your localhost, therefore if you have an HTTP server then you'll see it through that domain.

If you have another site you want to direct it to, just change the 127.0.0.1 to the IP of that site.

Its as easy as that.




But seriously, this might come in handy, if your sick of using localhost all the time, you can change it to something nicer

Hahaha! I was just looking at the oldest posts in these forums and saw this one with no replies. It is a hilarious trick - as you can actually feel like you are microsoft. I feel like doing it with google.com too Smile

It would be even better to modify the source code and host your own www.google.com to impress your friends even more. Granted there is only so much you can do with it, but it still would be fun.
