By default, VirtualHostX 7 requires that all of the websites you create end in
.vhx.host. This restriction is in place so we no longer have to prompt for your Administrator password every time you save your changes.
But some users may want to use a different domain name. Fortunately, that's easy!
<VirtualHost>custom directives box, add
ServerAlias your-domain-name.comand apply your changes.
/etc/hostsfile with a text editor and add a line that says
127.0.0.1 your-domain-name.comand save your changes.
That's it! Here's a quick video showing the process in action using our other app, Hostbuddy.
