Deny Yourself Access to a Domain Name.

Well, why the hell would I want to do that?

We’re moving our hosting to a new hosting provider and just to make sure we don’t have any absolute URL paths, we want to blackhole ourselves from that domain.

With some instructions from Kevin, here’s what we did:Add one line:

0.0.0.0 www.securevantage.com securevantage.com

Yeah, that’s it. Now my local machine goes to a blackhole when accessing the domains above. Awesome. Let the testing begin!

Pretty cool stuff. I just need to remember how to remove it after all this, that’s why I really posted this.

Where am I?
