adding domain name in /etc/hosts to speed up site


we fetch some data from one app from a separate app within the same domain. would it make sense to add

[]( [](

to the /etc/hosts file to speed up dns fetching?

and would this affect all links on our site when people click on ?

or are the links being fetched in the browser and the user’s own browser then looks up the DNS (i suspect this is the case 🙂


many thanks
