If you really want to go for speed you should be able to set the Host:
header to the name but use the IP address to make the connection.
Something else that might be slowing you down is anti-spyware or
anti-virus. Several products put a long list of blacklist sites in
the hosts file. Windows can be rather slow to process that file.
