Using Another Domain with Valet
By default, Valet serves your projects using the .dev TLD. If you'd like to use another domain, you can do so using the valet domain tld-name command.
For example, if you'd like to use .app instead of .dev, run valet domain app and Valet will start serving your projects at *.app automatically.

Laravel Valet for Windows 10
Windows port of the popular development environment Laravel Valet.
If you don't have Composer installed, make sure to install it.
Install Valet with Composer via
composer global require cretueusebiu/valet-windows.
valet installcommand. This will configure and install Valet and register Valet's daemon to launch when your system starts.
If you're installing on Windows 10, you may need to manually configure Windows to use the Acrylic DNS proxy.
Laravel Valet configures your Windows to always run Nginx in the background when your machine starts. Then, using Acrylic DNS, Valet proxies all requests on the
*.dev domain to point to sites installed on your local machine.
