Assign domain name to the container
I am looking for a way to assign a domain name to the container when it is started. For example, I want to start a web server container, and to be able to access web pages via domain name. Is there an easy way to do this ?

For all I know,
Docker doesn’t provide this feature out of the box. But surely there are several workarounds here. In fact you need to deploy a DNS on your host that will distinguish the containers and resolve their domain names in dynamical IPs. So you could give a try to:
- Deploy some of Docker-aware DNS solutions (I suggest you to use
- Configure your host to work with this DNS (by default
SkyDNSmakes the containers know each other by name, but the host is not aware of it);
- Run your containers with explicit
--hostname(you will probably use scheme
You can skip step #2 and run your browser inside container too: it will discover the web application container by hostname.
