      Just use OpenDNS in your DNS settings in windows and you wont have these stupid issues. I've been using it for years and i've never once had issues accessing any site

      Just posting here to confirm that the Hotfile IP host fix listed on the first page works fine for me..... I have just started being blocked from accessing.

      The Https trick also works, but adding the IP address to the hosts file is so much easier !!!!

      Whatever.....crappy dns then.... which results in intermittent access to Hotfile and Rapidshare

      Fixed 100% for me by added there IP's to the host file

      Just to point out for anyone, that if you used the "Hosts file fix" for Hotfile witht the IP address listed in the first post....
      It doesn't work anymore, they must have changed something.

      However the site seems to be working as normal without it at the moment.
