I'm trying to create a better web development environment by using a VirtualBox VM running Ubuntu 18.04 but I don't know how to configure the network settings to achieve what I want.
I want to be able to access the server from the host using SSH as well as the browser using either a name or an IP-address. I did get this to work by using a Bridged Adapter in the network settings but the IP-address is dynamic so I have to log in to the server and check the IP-address every time in order to access the server through the browser etc.
I want to configure the server so I can browse the websites I create and SSH into it from the host using a name (like a domain name without setting it up as a live server) or using a static IP instead of the current dynamic IP. Basically I just want the ability to use the server without checking the IP every time. I'd prefer the name option so that I don't have to remember the static IP but as long as I can use one of the two I'm happy.
How would I go about doing this?
Thanks in advance!
