Using Dnsmasq and nginx

How to point a localhost to a different name. Eg localhost -> fake.website.com for use in local development?

One solution was dnsmasq. Simply updating /etc/hosts was not working for me. I think there was something else I was missing out on. Following the instructions on the website listed in the source section worked for me.
