This article assume you have a default Ubuntu 14.04 Server installed.
Config the DNS Server
10.0.0.200 should be your Ubuntu server’s IP
Assuming you want to use Google’s DNS (i.e. 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199)
Added are two wildcard domains: *.app and *.dev and they will all point to localhost
You can also add more in /etc/dnsmasq.conf in this format “address=/DOMAIN/IP”
apt-get install dnsmasq cp /etc/dnsmasq.conf /etc/dnsmasq.conf.org cat > /etc/dnsmasq.conf << EOL domain-needed bogus-priv no-resolv no-poll server=/localnet/10.0.0.200 server=188.8.131.52 server=184.108.40.206 local=/localnet/ address=/double-click.net/127.0.0.1 no-hosts expand-hosts EOL cat > /etc/dnsmasq.d/app-tld << EOL local=/app/ address=/app/192.168.10.10 EOL cat > /etc/dnsmasq.d/dev-tld << EOL local=/dev/ address=/dev/127.0.0.1 EOL service dnsmasq restart
Optional: Update your router to use your own custom DNS Server
If you do this the custom domains on your DNS will be applied to all computers using your router. And if you do this you don’t have to add your own DNS server IP to your NIC’s DNS Server list anymore.
