I knew 8 of the 9, but the one I didn't (testing virtual hosts) was worth the cost of reading the entire article. Thanks.

That will only work with named vhosts. Outside of shared hosting / personal web servers, almost everyone uses IP-defined vhosts.

Well, doesn't everyone do "their own" shared hosting? With ip4 getting more and more scarce, and before ip6 is viable, I'll definitely keep using named vhosts for stuff. Add in SNI, and it even works with SSL. Sort of.

I just tweak my /etc/hosts to do this.
