How to give a given name instead of IP?

How to give a given name instead of IP?

How to give a given name instead of IP?

Hi all,

we have a server (Windows server 2008 R2 Standard) that runs a hyper V manager.
The Hyper V manager runs 2 virtual servers.

One of the virtual servers uses the software XAMPP (it’s a web portal). The local IP for the virtual machine is 192.168.0.xxx

I have configured the XAMPP in a way so that any user in our domain can access the portal when the user writes the ip address in the web browser.
Instead of the ip address, I want the user to be able to write a specific given name.

How can I create this?

Please ask if you need more information.

Thank you in advance

RE: How to give a given name instead of IP?

you could use a DNS record in your DNS server. that will translate the name to the IP.
