Settings in your "Hosts" file (Windows only)

There is one line that you should put in your "hosts" file on your computer that will solve problems in the future of not being able to get to this site.
This will only change if we change hosting!

Open notepad as Administrator, you do this by right clicking on notepad and then click on "Run ads Administrator"

You then need to go to the directory with the Hosts file in it, this is the path: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

Click on "File -open" in the dropdown box to the bottom right select "All files"


When open, add this line:


Save and you are done!

This WILL help to solve any problems geting to the site.
