Internal Link Format On Static Site


Recommended Posts

I’m building my website in a home based web server. As I have started to create internal links I’m wondering what the proper way of referring to the machine. 
Do I use the internal up address, local host or the outside domain name when referencing the root? What is best practice here?

You should omit the domain altogether. Preceding a path with a slash will make it relative to the website's root:

<a href="/things">

If you need to access your site from a different website you should put it on a public server.
