I have an apache web server hosting on a ubuntu machine in the LAN. I have been browsing the web site by using its ip address 192.168.1.14 but a friend of mine told me that I can access to it using something like a name like www.google.com
or whatever. I tried searching on google and most sites say I need a DNS server. Is there any way of doin it without using a DNS server ??? Thanks in advance.
