Modify Hosts File in Mac OS X - Mountain Lion

No comments
I'm liking my new Mac and I think switching from PC to Mac is a good decision. I also started to setup my development environment on Mac and as I do, I learn lot of new things everyday. One new thing I learned is how to edit Hosts File in Mac to map hostnames to IP addresses. To edit the hosts file, just follow these steps.

1. Open the Terminal app, either by using Sportlight or by going to your Applications > Utilities > Terminal.
