Simply, DesktopServer. Choose fictional domain names to personalize each of your projects and create dozens of virtual servers in seconds. WordPress designers and developers seldom work on a single project. Now you can create multiple isolated sites for webdesign or just for quickly and safely testing those plugins you’ve been meaning to try out. Now with new support for Dreamweaver and Coda2!
Create a dozen “virtual servers” for developing themes, or even take WordPress Multisite or BuddyPress for a spin. Each virtual server resides on your computer and can be easily accessed from your desktop web browser via a fictitious, pseudo top-level domain name: .dev.cc (in example, https://www.example.dev.cc). Using domain names you choose allows DesktopServer to support friendly permalinks and for you to develop complete solutions that support sub-domain and domain mapping (a requirement for enterprise Multisite development available in DesktopServer Premium edition only). Creating local development test sites right on your desktop that work just like real world servers is simple. See the Getting Started video.
