What is xip.io/nip.io?

CluedIn uses multiple custom ports and subdomains for organizations. When running locally this can incur significant setup with editing of hosts files and dns entries.

nip.io is a wildcard dns service that removes modification of the hosts by redirecting requests back to the specified host (in most cases 127.0.0.1 - the machine making requests).

Nip.io replaced xip.io

Early versions of Home used xip.io as a wildcard service but this is no longer available. For new environments created using Home 3.2.3 and up nip.io is automatically used.

If you have a previous environment, you can update to nip.io using:

> .\cluedin.ps1 env <name> -set cluedin_domain=127.0.0.1.nip.io
