Hi every body,
A friend told me about a software that seams very usefull, but he don't remember it's name, it saves each website's IP, for the first time you visit a website, next time, the internet explorer won't need to contact the DNS sever, this will surely increase speed connexion.
so is that even possible?, if yes and you come across one them, please give me the name.
Thank you in advance.
Sorry about my weak English

Yes it is possible. And it what the hosts file is for. These software, I believe, just doing DNS query and save the result in the hosts file.

However modern web browsers all already cached dns query results they had done. No need for external software to do this for them.

I believe nearly all browsers do this without asking (and probably the OS itself as well). I mean when I first visit Google it spends half a second "Looking up Google.com" but for a decent while after it loads much quicker. NB: Don't use Internet Explorer, I recommend you switch to Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera or Safari for increased stability and security.

Please, write clearly with proper structure. Double spacing makes the text feel un-jointed, Capitalizing Every Word Means People Stop Before Every Word Sub-Consciously Which Is A Pain In The Backside, and use code tags! (The right most styling box).
