Edit the Windows Hosts File and insert one line:

Code: Select all
127.0.0.1  www.vpss.com



If you dont know, what the Hosts File is and where you can find it, see Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosts_(file)

I assume you want to broadcast your website on http://www.vpss.com on the internet.
Xampp can not do that for you. It is a local testing environment.

What you need in this case is a service provider who is hosting your web pages for you. You have to register the domain name http://www.vpss.com with your service provider.
I just had a quick look, the domain name "vpss.com" is available, but some shark wants more money for it.

Best of luck.
