Don't forget to reply to the ML too :-)

No need to return hash, because you already returned synthetic in that case.

By the way, Dridi told me that vcl actually support "else if", "elsif" and "elif", so you can disregard my remark about it.

Appreciate your help. One question the else {

Do I add the return hash underneath it

"elsif" needs to be "else if", and I would add:

else {

at the end to make sure you only serve content from these two domains.

So I have setup a basic default.vcl and my question how do I get the Varnish server to answer web request before going to the backend  drupal servers not sure if I am stating this correctly. Our DNS admin point the urls to Varnish server but I am getting page not found. Am I missing a config in the default.vcl? Thanks! I researched and I am not seeing any good information.

backend drupal {
    .host = "<>";
    .port = "80";
    .connect_timeout = 6000s;
    .first_byte_timeout = 6000s;
    .between_bytes_timeout = 6000s;

backend ncwrite {
    .host = "<>";
    .port = "80";
    .connect_timeout = 6000s;
    .first_byte_timeout = 6000s;
    .between_bytes_timeout = 6000s;

sub vcl_recv {
    if ( == "<>"){
        set req.backend_hint = drupal;
    } elsif ( == "<>"){
       set req.backend_hint = ncwrite;
       return (hash);
