To create a SiteCollection with a host header irrespective of the WebApplication host header

To create a SiteCollection with a host header irrespective of the WebApplication host header (even if the WebApplication did not have a host header)
Solution: In PowerShell: New-SPSite http://host.header.site.url -OwnerAlias DOMAIN\username -HostHeaderWebApplication http://servername
Need to add a A record in the DNS.

**If you want to make this work in your dev machine then add a entry in the Hosts file of your SharePoint server.

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts.txt

for example:

127.0.0.1          intranet.triadinfotech.com
Hope this will be helpful in your current and future SharePoint Implementations.

In PowerShell: New-SPSite http://host.header.site.url -OwnerAlias DOMAIN\username -HostHeaderWebApplication http://servername
But this gave birth to a new issue: Cannot open the SharePoint site on server, but works on clients
Solution: Suppose you run into problems with your machine that you can never open the SharePoint site on your server
There might be several reasons why you may run into this

First question: do you have a Host header on the site?
Second: did you configure the site in a Host header mode?
Third : Is the site browse able on the server with servername ?

Steps to do that are as follows:
