My development server is on my local machine (127.0.0.1). I have created an A record in my DNS settings that points
127.0.0.1 so that I can use this domain name for accessing my local web app. I know I could use my
/etc/hosts file but I feel it is easier to manage by using DNS and when we want to add a developer on the team, it removes the step of having to add a line in their hosts file.
My question is: is it safe to do this? Is there anything that can go wrong?
