Comment (by humdinger):

 I wasn't aware of a "hosts" file two years ago, but using it kill online
 ads introduced me to it. I do enjoy using an alias for my raspberry media
 player and NAS, too.

 Maybe an "Edit hosts file" button to open it in the preferred text editor
 would be OK. Then the config view wouldn't be so empty with just the
 "Hostname" to be set, too. :)\\
 The panel should then be renamed to "Host settings".
