Lets say we have to setup idify.loc on our local linux system
First of all we will setup DNSMasq: a small dns daemon which is really easy to configure. This’ll be used for wildcard subdomain domain names.
sudo apt-get install dnsmasq
After that we have to create a file in the folder /etc/dnsmasq.d/ with the domain name for the subdomain wildcard to work.
In our case the filename is idify
Type the below text in this newfile created
and then restart the dnsmasq service
sudo service dnsmasq restart
Now the last thing remaining is the changes in virtual host entry under /etc/apache2/sites-available/
Add below two lines under your virtual host entry
Now you can run any subdomain with idify.loc on browser .
