    Question Apache Configuration for Multiple Hosts

    Hi,

    Recently I installed XAMPP onto a clean XP machine. I have started to use it to host my website though I want to host other websites now from it. I have done alot of searching on Google and I have read many articles based on the topic though I am still having trouble putting it into practice.

    I have edited the HTTP-HOSTS file and also the Windows HOSTS file so I know how to do all that. I have followed several tutorials on doing this; this one mainly outlines what I have done.

    Though I can't see how you can access the virtual hosts outside of the computer they are on. For example; if I was to visit http://mylocalwebsite from the computer it was beinga hosted on, it would work but how could I access it from outside that computer (away from its localhost - either within the local network [on an IP preferably] or on the internet [through a domain - I have purchased domains before])?
    I'm guessing I should use a locally hosted DNS for this so that the computer knows what website to point a domain towards when accessed outside of the localhost? Something like BIND? Anybody have experience in BIND?

    Thanks very much =)
