Alternative to dev TLD in vhosts file?

Postby garycarlyle » 13. August 2016 00:02

Hi,

I have got my local computer online as a webserver for multiple websites but is there an alternative to calling them .dev or a main TLD like .com?

I tried .loc and .local but neither seem to work.

I dont mind using .dev for now but I really wanted at least one other so I could have staging environment and not just development branches.

Thanks very much for any help in advance. =)

Hi,

you can use whatever you want as long as you can assure the client can resolve this domain.

best wishes,
