It works! At least for the time being… But listen:
First, make sure that the .hosts file has the read-only mark unchecked. If not, it will save the changes to a similar files called hosts.txt… NOT THE .hosts FILE!
Second, do not forget to execute Notepad (or whatever you are using) as an administrator. If you do not execute Notepad as an admin, you will be unable to save the changes: it will toss you an “access denied” error.
Bearing in mind these crucial recommendations, follow the instructions of this tutorial. Also, these recommendations only apply to Windows users (like me). Your mileage may vary.
For those who are still not able to get onto StormFront, even though the domain name should be recovered this week, here are the instructions on how to edit your hosts file to workaround the dns:
On Windows, Mac, or Linux computers, all you need to do is edit your hosts file. Just add this line, standing all alone by itself, to the existing hosts file with Notepad or a similar text editor:
22.214.171.124 stormfront.org www.stormfront.org
As an alternative, you can also use this (but don’t use both at the same time):
126.96.36.199 stormfront.org www.stormfront.org
If you don’t know how to edit your hosts file, see the instructions at this link:
