I read the following:
To bypass this type of blocking you can configure your computer to always use a predefined IP address when accessing yyy.com. In order to do that, you need to edit the so called hosts file. On Windows it's "C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc\hosts".
Does this mean:
That I can put I can make any site think I coming from a different IP address?
For example if I want to come in to experts-exchange from ip 184.108.40.206 (I made this up) I can edit the host file and experts exchange will record this as my ip address?
