Can't access Here's How to make it work with a simple trick [How To]

The recent nameserver wipes out, presumably by the domain registrar revoked the direct access to the domain. Nobody can actually access the website with the currently known domain names because the domain cannot be resolved to the actual server where the files have been kept.

Don't be so worried, we are here to help. Just because there is no mediocre DNS mechanism to convert the domain names into an IP address, it doesn't mean you can't access it. Domain name is only the phase of words that is meant to make it easy to remember the web address - it holds the key to the IP address of the server where the files have been stored.

To test this theory, try to access the website with this IP address - ? Got it? Is It simple right?

So, why do we need these domain names? Simply because we can't remember all those digits for every website you have to access. It's easier to remember "" rather than "" to access your favorite "ahem!!" website.

So, how you are going to make it work? Just follow the simple steps below.



1. Download and install NotePad ++ (link provided below)

2. Go To C:/ (or your OS drive) > Windows > System32 > drivers > etc

3. right click on "hosts" file and from the drop down menu select "Edit with Notepad++"

z 000854. Add these lines at the bottom of the window

z 00025 copy5. Restart your browser if you already have opened to read this article. And try visiting h33t with any link you mentioned in your hosts file.


1. NotePad ++ [Download]



I noticed that some of the users are having problem settings things up, some being not able to save the "hosts" file because of the access permissions are not correct or some of them simply didn't follow the tutorial correctly. Watch this video set the "User access control" to minimal on your windows powered system.

Update: Website is back Online under new domain (9th December 2013) - Click here for more information

Update: H33t is being propagated to the new domain. Read more.

Update: This trick does not work right now, h33t servers are down. We hope they'll be back soon, but it seems they're gone for good.
