in your ...sytem32/drivers/etc/hosts file.

sari42's suggestion works on any PC on which the "hosts" (note that it's hosts, not host) file is amended. It can be very useful for development work and in-house testing. My hosts file tells a story! ;)

For a more flexible/dynamic solution, look at virtual hosting. Search this forum for that and/or "vhost" and you'll find a wealth of information.

farmdve, would you please re-write your question in long-hand. It's not clear to me what you're asking.
