First and foremost if you've not noticed already, you can now download the hpHosts file as an ASCII (.txt) file. Links to the mirrors hosting the file can be found on the download page (or in the hpHosts download locations/mirrors thread).

.... and the request?

I'd like your opinions on whether or not you'd like a feature to query the hpHosts database from your own applications and/or website's (e.g. for using in a spam filter). I've got the feature in place already and it only requires two things;

1. Your user agent (e.g. your application's name or website's URL)
2. The domain/IP you are querying

It will return simply whether or not it is listed in the database (additional info can be added if needed)

If it's a feature you'll want to use, post a reply here to let me know, and I'll post the respective URL.

I've updated the site again so it will show matches to the domain even if there are no matches to the actual IP ..... for example;

http://hosts-file.net/?s=ugo.com

Since this doesn't really apply to me currently, it's hard for me to give an opinion. But it is a good idea and I can see this as being handy for those it would apply to. Wink
