Hi,
I have an issue regarding the host name. i saw a previous post regarding the same topic. My problem is slightly different.
by editing the host file, i could change
http://localhost:8080/PTS/JSP/myfile.jsp to http://www.applname.com:8080/PTS/JSP/myfile.jsp.
Is it possible to change the host name to
http://www.applname.com/myfile.jsp
that is, i would like to hide the port number and file location too.

Thanks in advance,
Nitin

Hi,

Yes, you can change the entry in windows host file...

It will contain an entry somewhat like

127.0.0.1 localhost

you can change it to

127.0.0.1 www.ujjwal.com


Cheers!!!

The short answer is: No, you can not change the host fil, and get the URL you here want.

BUT - you can set up your Application Server, so you will get the wanted URL.
