How to make local DNS server?

Specs: Windows XP
I know i can use the hosts file to manually tag ips to domain names but can i have the ip to every website i visit "cached" in a local database so that i first query my database to see if the ip i am trying to reach is there?

So it would go

DNS request >> check my databse first and if not there then..>> ISP DNS >> IP gets sent back to me to run the http request>> store this ip in databse >> query database first to see if domain name/ip is there, if not go to ISP DNS etc etc

What happens when one of these IP address change, which they do from time to time. Unless there is some way of updating your database automatically you will get a 404 error.

If you really do want a DNS, have a look at this:
