First of all go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc in your windows explorer.In that "etc" folder you can see a file named "HOSTS".It will not have any extensions.Open it with notepad.Ok after you opened it with notepad,now do the trick carefully.

1] you can see an IP number and computer's localhost name there like this -"127.0.0.1 localhost"

127.0.0.3 www.hotgirls.com
