I have a fresh SharePoint 2013 on 2008r2 installation. I create a new web application with default settings but instead of the default public url, I enter http://qwe:
I go on to create a site collection sc1. The site is created but when I try to open http://qwe/sites/sc1, I receive an error message qwe's server DNS address could not be found
I realize it's a silly question, especially given the error message, but after reading on Update a web application URL and IIS bindings for SharePoint 2013 and similar topics I still seem to be getting nowhere.
Could someone give me a hand and explain the step I am missing?
Site collections created under default url, e.g. http://WIN-2TED5E2GK7G:7031/sites/testsite work without issues.
Apart from the steps mentioned, I did NOT configure any bindings, alternate mappings or DNS settings for the web application.
