Entering the URL in the browser

http://

Modern browsers usually have a combined field for entering the URL and a search term. For this reason, it can happen that the browser interprets your input of the URL as a search term. For this reason, it is advisable to specify the URL in full. Start with http:// followed by the hostname. The complete URL will look like this: http://mywordpress.test.

Hostname without dot

If your hostname does not contain a dot, you need to add it after the hostname in the address bar of your browser. This is the only way to access the host from another computer or smartphone. For example, if your host is called host-7, you must enter http://host-7. in the address bar of your browser. Entering http://host-7 (without a dot at the end) will not work because host-7 is not a fully qualified hostname.
