View Full Version : [ubuntu] Internal Address

October 11th, 2011, 10:05 AM
I want to give an internal address to my pc, example: mywebsite.net

To do this I changed hosts file by adding:

mywebsite.net name_of_my_machine

After that I restart the pc and I couldn't have it working. So I tried with:

mywebsite name_of_my_machine

and after the reboot it worked, I'm wondering why I can't use .net or any other thing since its in the internal network

for my hosts file, I added the ip address of the machine: mydomain.com machine

Adding entries to the host file attached using your example.
