Adding an Internet host to /etc/hosts is a broken approach. It might be useful to fix a temporary name service issue but it is nothing more than a temporary workaround.

What is the problem you are trying to solve ?

The correct way is to have the DNS properly configured.

That depends. Is it a server (static IP) or a laptop/workstation (dynamic IP) ?
How are the other machines on your network configured regarding the DNS ?

Thanks jlliagre....

The issue is " user like to run a script on a server, and on this server when i try to ping, shows unknown host". Vendor mentioned The script gonna use this site to complete installation.

Let me know ::
1. why it shows UNKNOWN HOST from server when i tried to ping.
2. If it is a Firewall BLOCK, how can i go ahead to fix firewall.
3. if there is anything else.. please suggest me ...

Pinging an http address doesn't make sense. Please clarify what you precisely do and how it fails.
