Multiple virtual hosts - This site can’t be reached Vagrant/Virtualbox

I'm having problem setting multiple virtual domains. Tried so many solutions, nothing worked. I'm just missing something but have no clue what. It's been frustrating journey say the least. I have set up 2 virtual boxes: one for Laravel environment and one for Magento environment. They both have the same problem, domain doesn't work. Here is for magento:

  • Folder: magento
  • Virtual domain: magento.box
  • magento.conf
  • ip: 192.168.10.10

When I enter in browser 192.168.10.10 it runs fine, but if I enter magento.box it states:

This site can’t be reached 
magento.box’s server DNS address could not be found.

For Laravel is the same.

Magento virtualbox

provision-ubuntu-15.10.sh:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

# Ubuntu 15.10 (GNU/Linux 4.2.0-34-generic x86_64) / ubuntu/wily64

# Update Ubuntu
# apt-get update

# Apache
echo "----- Provision: Installing apache..."
# apt-get install -y apache2 apache2-utils

echo "ServerName localhost" > "/etc/apache2/conf-available/fqdn.conf"
a2enconf fqdn
a2enmod rewrite
a2dissite 000-default.conf

# Folders
echo "----- Provision: Setup /var/www to point to /vagrant ..."
rm -rf /var/www
ln -fs /vagrant /var/www

# Apache / Virtual Host Setup
 echo "----- Provision: Install Host File..."
 cp /vagrant/vm_provision/hostfile /etc/apache2/sites-available/magento.conf
 a2ensite magento.conf

# Cleanup
apt-get -y autoremove

# Restart Apache
echo "----- Provision: Restarting Apache..."
service apache2 restart

Vagrantfile

 Vagrant.configure(2) do |config|
      config.vm.box = "ubuntu/wily64"

        config.vm.network "private_network", ip: "192.168.10.10",

        owner:"vagrant", 
        group: "www-data", 
        mount_options:["dmode=770, fmode=660"]

      # VirtualBox specific settings

      config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |vb|
        vb.gui = false
        vb.memory = "2048"
        vb.cpus = 1
      end

apache my.conf

To be able to enter magento.box or any other LOCAL domain (eg. not available on the external internet) you need to modify the "hosts" file on the machine running the browser. In this case, your host (not inside your vagrant machine). The process varies depending on if you're running Windows/OSX/Linux/etc., but here is a quick overview from Wikipedia.

The three you probably care about:

Windows

%SystemRoot%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

OSX

/etc/hosts

Linux

/etc/hosts

In that file, you will need to add the following line to let your OS know that magento.box means look at 192.168.10.10:

192.168.10.10    magento.box

Note you may need to restart in order for this to take effect. Also note that you will need admin/sudo privileges in order to edit this file.
