Local domains

Local domains .local are special top-level domains TLDs used in local or private networks. These domains are not part of the global Domain Name System DNS and are not accessible from the public internet. Instead, they are designed for internal use which makes them perfect for app development and testing purposes. Local domains are usually published using multicast DNS protocol mDNS.

LocalCan app

Trusted by 1000+ developers


Before LocalCan, we would occasionally waste a lot of time troubleshooting virtual hosts or config files, which could behave in very odd and unexpected ways. Thanks to LocalCan, it has become as simple as flicking a switch, and we are ready to go in seconds, saving us a lot of potential headaches. When reaching out for support, we had immediate response and resolution within a day.
