[Other] Adding entries to HOSTS file by batch script?

I just want to know how can I add for example the following lines or entries to my HOSTS file using a batch script?
And how can I ensure that these new entries will remain somewhere in the bottom and not to scatter all around?

For example, i want to add the following by using a batch script.

127.0.0.1 1.com
127.0.0.1 2.com
127.0.0.1 3.com
127.0.0.1 4.com
127.0.0.1 5.com
127.0.0.1 6.com

Thx in advance.

Put this in the Batch file and it should work.

@ECHO OFF
TITLE=Update Hosts File
copy C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts.bck
ECHO. >> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
ECHO 127.0.0.1 1.com >> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
ECHO 127.0.0.1 2.com >> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
ECHO 127.0.0.1 3.com >> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
ECHO 127.0.0.1 4.com >> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
ECHO 127.0.0.1 5.com >> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
ECHO 127.0.0.1 6.com >> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
EXIT
 

Added the echo. so that it would add CR.

You may want to sent a CR first in case the last line is lacking one.
