Project Description
Provides local hosts file management from within IIS 7, including bulk editing.

Hosts File Manager allows local host entries (in %windir%\system32\drivers\etc) to be edited from within IIS Manager. In addition to providing a GUI, IIS Manager can also provide integration into individual websites on the local machine. IIS Manager is also auto-elevated in Windows 7, making the process even smoother.
