Edit the Windows Hosts File and insert one line:

Code: Select all

If you dont know, what the Hosts File is and where you can find it, see Wikipedia:

soundar what i should do change this me :idea:

I assume you want to broadcast your website on 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 with your service provider.
I just had a quick look, the domain name "" is available, but some shark wants more money for it.

Best of luck.
