Bug: .local domain on mac does not work properly

On a mac, Bonjour service is listening to all .local ending TLD. When using BrowserSync for example to develop a site, it’s working, but very slow, as the mac Bonjour service always waits for a timeout with each request.

I would suggest changing default Local by Flywheel domain to .test for example, as it’s a reserved TLD, see: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2606

Other reserved TLD which will not be made global are:

  • .test
  • .example
  • .invalid
  • .localhost
