Magento2 Virtualhost Website not accessible Firefox / adds www

Windows 10 x64
WampServer v3.1.3 64
Apache 2.4.33
PHP 7.1.16
Magento 2.2.2


So odd, I have used WAMP for years now, but last week I decided to do my half annual Windows reinstall with a brand new WAMP again.

Did the same steps except for using this time the Virtualhost option within WAMP.

But the strange thing is that with Firefox (my preferred browser) it does not load when you go to the Virtualhost via the localhost website, and if you input the URL in the address line, it adds www before the website.localhost URL.

But with Chrome it does load.

So I decided to use it with Chrome then, well, turned out that my Gulp Browsersync cannot find the website either, also not with Chrome.

Has anybody an idea what this could be?

Try this HOSTS file fix


127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost

127.0.0.1 website.localhost
::1 website.localhost


I was also wondering if using the `.localhost` on `website.localhost` might be causing a little confusion.

I woudl also suggest using `website.local` for example. That would also require a quick amendment to the httpd-vhosts.conf file as well.

Let me know if this is any help.

When I use local instead of localhost even Chrome cannot connect, it will try to search for it on google.

When I go to localhost and then click op website.local it says ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

Tried a simple HTML website to see if maybe my Magento data was not correct, but same result.

Hi,

> When I use local instead of localhost even Chrome cannot connect, it will try to search for it on google.

Never forget that if you modify a ServerName and, of course, the same name in the hosts file, you must restart the DNS and Apache for this modification to be taken into account by Apache and Windows.
A tool integrated to Wampserver can do this:
Ricght-Click Wampmanager tray icon -> Tools -> Restart DNS

Ok, I have a clue now what caused it, but not the exact reason behind it, it happened because of install of software that edits HOST file. Let's just keep it at that. But the odd thing is that changing the HOST file back does not fix the problem afterwards.
