    Hosts file is being ignored


    I tried blocking some websites with the hosts file and it completely gets ignored. I did all possible access ways for the website and still can access it. It's been awhile but either way I don't need to put all the possible ways, just what I type, no? e.g tenforums.com should still be blocked if I type it like that even if I left the other ways open.

    Flushed dns, removed and made the file again. Same thing. . The spacing etc on host file is also correct so not sure what the issue is. I use 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 as my dns server and Firefox with cloudflare dot (although same thing happens on other browsers too) W10 Pro 1909

    Thanks in advance

    Hi, no name, let's start with something basic.

    Post here what your HOSTS file looks like. You can open it with Notepad or whatever you like. Select all entries, copy, and paste it right here in a reply. No pics. The file please. Thanks.

    If it's too big, Zip it and post the Zip file.

    Nevermind, it's because of DOT after all.
