Question from a noobie

Postby I-Lan » 20. October 2004 11:48

I installed XAMPP on windows NT.
I can visit my site when I surf to 127.0.0.1
How can I use a domainname, now I just use my ip or localhost

Can someone help me out?

Hi,

you can use your PC-Name if you like...
If you want it to be available under other Names.. then you must have either a WINS-Server or DNS server and make the entries.

Hi,

yes it is quite difficult... since you need to know some basics about networks etc.

But google.com might help ya find something?

Edit the file "HOSTS" in "\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc" (not "hosts.sam").

This is fairly complicated stuff. First, you're talking about several different things. Are you looking to get to your web site from the maching running XAMPP? Or from another machine on your local network? Or from the internet? Do you want a regular internet domain name, or just a name you can use from your own network? All these things are different.
