what server are you looking for?
the /etc/hosts file is a local file that most OSs have someplace. M$ has em, as does linux, i would guess that MAC does too.
my hosts file has over 700 entries in it. does slow things down form time to time, but it keeps a lot of the junk out of my M$ systems and keeps a load of banner adds from coming up on my *nix systems.
