How to test your Cloud Hosting without changing DNS records

The easyiest way to test the functionality of your Cloud Hosting is to
use the "hosts" file of your operating system. The hosts file is
available in both Windows and Linux operating systems.

Windows - most probably C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

Linux - /etc/hosts

Mac OS X - /private/etc/hosts

The configuration is simple. Let's say you want to resolve your domain
example.tld to the IP address In this case you need to edit
your hosts file this way: example.tld www.example.tld

This will "tell" your computer to resolve domain example.tld to IP

You may also need to clear your web browser's cache.

In case you don't know the IP address of your SnackHost Cloud Hosting, you
can find that in DOMAIN DETAILS (Overview) for your domain in SnackHost
user interface.
