Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I don't want to depend solely on in-browser ad blockers. I therefore created my own block list of advertisers' domains and pointed them all to a 0.0.0.0 IP address.

I now started a project and need to do some local development on port 80. I found however when I browse sites while doing development I am getting error messages in the log files.

What is the canonical way to do such things - what quick and unresolvable IP addresses can I point to?

If you are interested here is my list.

Why didn't you just use the loopback ip, 127.0.0.1? –  Rob Nov 3 '11 at 14:40

@Rob 127.0.0.1 is actually the same and point same host as 0.0.0.0. –  Mikhail Kashkin Nov 9 '11 at 14:49

You can also use 254.254.254.254. He can't use 127.0.0.1 because he said he has a webserver on his system already. Although I kinda wonder if you could point themto something dumb like 356.0.0.0?

He could run the webserver from a different than standard port, as he said it's local development. –  Rob Nov 3 '11 at 14:55
    
@Rob True, true... –  Canadian Luke Nov 3 '11 at 16:20
    
I cann't there is some story behind, sure 80 is not good practice. –  Mikhail Kashkin Nov 9 '11 at 14:41

Just a note that you can set the IP address used with my list by using the "useip" query string parameter. eg:

http://pgl.yoyo.org/as/serverlist.php?hostformat=hosts;showintro=0&useip=0.0.0.0
