Accessing my local website from a different device in same LAN

So I have got a website hosted on my PC on which wampserver is installed...The website works fine on this PC as well as all devices connected to the same Wi-Fi using my PC's IP address...

On the server PC, the website can be accessed through my website's domain name ( www.bhgyck.com ) but on all the other devices, I am forced to use the IP to access the website.

How can I access my website through the website's domain name from any other device in the LAN, say, my phone?

Is there a workaround for this? Any help would be appreciated!



Thanks in advance.

(Pardon me if my question is silly...I'm a newbie in this area)

Edit the HOSTS file on the other devices.

Add your host using its name and the ip address of the PC running WAMPServer, like this for example


192.168.0.10 bhgyck.com

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.2.8 32bit & 64bit) Aestan Tray Menu 3.2.4.7
<Apache versions MULTIPE> <PHP versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Versions MULTIPLE>
<MariaDB versions MULTIPLE> <phpMyAdmin versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Workbench 8.0.23>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
Get your Apache/MySQL/mariaDB/PHP ADDONs here from the WAMPServer alternate Repo
