Hi Everyone,

I have \XAMPP\htdocs with a couple of folders containing some websites.

One particular site i made it accessible via the web. I also downloaded and installed a dns server called (Dual Server).

I setup httpd.conf to listen on my pc's ip!

Am accessing it either via localhost or my ip :

In hosts file i put my ip followed by localhost: localhost

The question is? How can i attribute this location "" a unique hostname such as (www.whatever.com) ?

I intend to do the same procedure for the other sites/folders!

I am an inexperienced Administrator!

    XAMPP is not configurated for such environments (default passwords, many activated and probably unnecessary modules, not tweaked for performance, scalability, stability or security). This board does have several entrys about hacked XAMPP installations because of using unprotected XAMPP installations in not supported environments. XAMPP don't want to fit every possible use case and there are other (also free) alternatives for such environments.

best wishes,
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
