Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

i created an intranet (lamp) and now i have to make it visible using this url intranet:

the solution i found was to put in each computers (mac, windows) this in the hosts file using the ip 192.168.1.100 and the alias intranet

the intranet has a static ip

i dont want to change all of themsince i have 50+ computers. is there an easy way to make all the computers use http//intranet instead of http//192.168.1.100

This is exactly why DNS was invented. Set up a DNS server. If you already have one, make use of it.
