Obviously, I develop websites, or I wouldn't need this. (version 7) I do have to say that it's much more convenient to use than XAMPP or MAMP. It encapsulates the environment, so I'm no longer using parts of my own OS during testing. This clears up a number of things I've run into over the years with other "local hosts" and makes the software worth paying for. And, the author is diligent and conscientious. 5 stars.

I have only downloaded the trial but I was weary of the reviews stating that there are security holes in this! I want to be able to host my website from my desktop is this an alternative to having a virtual host from a hosting service? Or is this more like a testing server like MAMP or XAMPP?

I use VirtualHostX almost every day and find it well worth the money. As a web developer frequently managing staging and production environments, this allows me to to set things up quickly and skipping over the repetitive tasks. I also appreciate the convenient "share over network" feature, which I use for pulling up tests on my iPhone, virtual machines, or anything else. A little on the expensive side, sure, but VirtualHostX gets a lot of use in my development workflow.

Seems that 35$ totally overpriced. I'm using Host Manager for that what VirtualHostX can do. My favorite is the 'Host Manager' for free. Another freeware is 'Gas Mask'. Both applications are highly recommended.

I really want to like this application but there are a few things that hold me back from even considering purchasing. The first is what appears to be quite a glaring security omission: The fact that it stores domain details which include usernames and passwords for such things as FTP, SSH access with no way to password protect them. Not only that, but the password fields have no way to hide the password in a "••••" style (consider this an issue if working in a local cafe). Considering how many clients details a user of this application might have it really needs both of these features. I, for example, keep this kind of information in 1Password which has both these levels of security. Next is that it appears there is no way to export data from the application. I'm not going to want to spend any amount of time entering domain details for my own and client's domains, etc without being sure that I can get that information out easily if I need to. This brings me onto my final issue; price. $35 certainly isn't a lot if it improves a (likely) professional workflow but compared to applications of a similar calibre, such as... http://cutedgesystems.com/software/WebMonForLion/ ...which is $25, it seems overpriced, especially with the omissions mentioned above which reduce its capacity for professional use.

It would be great if this could also configure BitNami stacks, such as MAMPstack (http://bitnami.org/stack/mampstack) and Rubystack (http://bitnami.org/stack/rubystack).

Note that this was free until just recently. Further, it looks like every minor upgrade will be costing $5.00. The page says the cost is $7, but it is really $10. Sorry, I mistook this for Virtual Box.

I've been using this for months now, and the addition of custom directives makes it even better than before. I'm pretty comfortable editing config files by hand, but this tool makes it even easier, and just about foolproof -- and anything that improves productivity as much as this is hard to beat for the price. Just started testing the latest version, and I like the way the custom directives are implemented -- simply, and out of the way if you don't need them. My only suggestion would be for it to include any directives already in place on the virtual hosts before this update.

$7... Well, I think that's far more expensive than a google search on '/etc/hosts'... : /

This application is indispensable for any web designer or developer that builds websites that utilize the Apache server on OS X. Setting up vhosts on your localhost is an excellent way to build and test websites before they get deployed to the live production server. This program, simply put, makes my life a lot easier when setting up vhosts on my computer.
