Or you can also use /etc/hosts and set IP to a hostname locally.
There is very little security a 'unique' port provides because without
a firewall that has whitelists over blacklist or are doing
port-knocking they'll eventually discover the port, sooner then later
IMO.  That is if it's a real adversary, I guess for a dumb adversary
it would hold them off but I would much rather assume the adversary is
smart rather than compromise by assuming they are dumb.
