Pointing my local /etc/hosts domains to an ip

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I'm testing a new server and have been playing with /etc/hosts. I have been able to get it working on just domain.com, but if I try www.domain.com it points to where the actual domain is currently delegated, not the testing server. ie xxx.xx.xx.xx domain.com If I load domain.com, I get the ip address I enter. With this though I enter www.domain.com I get where the domain is currently hosted. if I try: xxx.xx.xx.xx www.domain.com I still end up with where the domain is currently hosted and not the test server. What am I missing here? (HowTos)
