Be advised that if you go to this developer's website -- it now has a valid certificate, BTW -- and enter your name, and then click on the "Buy Now" button, when it tries to connect to the Paddle store, it returns a "Page not found" error. I am not sure if Tyler has simply withdrawn his app from their pay service, or if maybe he is using a different service. Whatever the case may be, it is currently impossible to purchase this app, even if you wanted to.

Hmmm... clicking on the author's web site link above to link to https://clickontyler.com/hostbuddy/ results in an untrusted site certificate error: "clickontyler.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided." So I'm supposed to trust a program that will alter my HOST file, which controls access to sites, to a developer whose own site doesn't even have a trusted certificate??? I don't think so.... Use at your own risk. It may be a very good program, but not worth my time to find out if the developer can't even invest the time to ensure their site has a proper certificate.
