Name

dns_defnames

Synopsis

This directive is meaningful only with the —disable-internal-dns option.

By default, Squid’s dnsserver program doesn’t attempt to expand single-word hostnames (such as www) into fully qualified domain names. If your users are accustomed to using single-word hostnames, you may want to enable this directive.
