    I don't know which lists you're using, but be aware that some lists may be too aggressive. For instance, I believe that hpHosts (main list) blocks access to Free Download Manager website, and simply because it also hosts other applications, which may be of dubious nature. So, in this particular situation, it blocks the good with the bad.

    You'll need to create your own exclusion list, if you want to use your hosts file to block access to domains. HostsMan allows you to create an exclusion list; you'll find that option in one of its menus. Each time you update the hosts file, HostsMan will remove any entry that matches those in the exclusion list.

    I use two the MVPS Hosts and the hp hosts (Ad and Tracking Servers Only) then set the default in options
    to overwrite current hosts.. :)
