How To Run Multiple Websites On Your Mac

Thursday, January 22, 2015

VirtualHostX has been around for over seven years now. But I've never taken the time to make a single screencast that walks you through setting up multiple virtual hosts (websites) on your Mac from start to finish.

So, today I fixed that.

Below is a short, four minute video that explains in detail how to start with a clean installation of Yosemite and in less than two minutes, have three websites (including PHP!) up and running on your Mac - each one using a custom domain name for testing. And, as a bonus, I also show how to view and test your websites on your iPhone or iPad.

If you've only ever heard about VirtualHostX and never seen the app in action, or are curious how to test multiple websites on your Mac at the same time, definitely take a few minutes and watch the video below. I think you'll be surprised at how easy it is to setup.
