Well the two you listed are different things.

 

OpenDNS is a set of DNS servers you can use in place of your ISP DNS server. Supposedly theyre a bit faster and it has phishing protection. If you create an OpenDNS account, you can also customize it for content filtering.

 

HostsMan is a program for managing your Hosts file. It can autoupdate (from several sources), edit, remove duplicates, among other features.
