Support for multiple hostname to same IP Address (Virtual Hosts)?

I'm pretty sure it's not possible at this point (unless one uses DNSMasq in DD-WRT), but an option to map multiple hostnames to a single IP address would be nice to have,..

I for one use Virtual Hosts on my Apache test web-server, a not uncommon method to "host" multiple websites on just one server.
With tools like DNSMasq one can assign multiple hosts names to the same IP address so that they all resolve to the same IP-Address.
If I'd be working on just desktop or laptop computers then I'd simply modify the hosts file of that computer. This is however not an option on most smartphones and tablets.

I guess what I'm asking is:
- Is this possible in the latest firmware (it works in DD-WRT)?
- Where can we [users] submit feature requests, like this one?

Go to DD-WRT and join their forum. This forum does not support DD-WRT discussion

Thanks jmizoguchi!

I submitted a ticket!

I was actually trying to find this functionality in the NetGear firmware, trying to avoid DD-WRT ... Smiley Happy
