Website Preview via the Hosts File (Recommended)

Editing your hosts file is a temporary measure to preview your site as it will load from your EntirelyDigital server. This lets you make changes on a server other than the one loaded by your domain when visitors access your page.

When finished, you will want to undo the changes you have made to your hosts file.

Note: EntirelyDigital recommends changing your hosts file for development. It provides a stable environment for editing a website to work correctly with your domain. Other methods can cause configuration issues after development is complete.
