Host cannot be accessed in browser

If you try to open the URL of a local host in your browser and get a message that the host is unavailable or you are redirected to the search engine specified in your browser, this may be due to the following reasons

A) You misspelled the name of the host. B) You typed the URL without http:// or https://. C) You forgot to specify the port. This is only necessary if you are using a port other than 80.

If you are not sure which URL to enter when calling a host, just click the “Open” button on the [General tab] (/Software-Documentation/en/MAMP-PRO-Mac/Settings/Hosts/General/) of the corresponding host.
