I am running MAMP 4.1.1 on my mac mini with OSX Sierra (10.12.3).

lately when I try to load pages for a site using a virtual host, it is VERY slow to load.

if i load pages without a virtual host it comes up very quick.

here is what is in my hosts file

Code:
 127.0.0.1		localhost
    255.255.255.255	broadcasthost
    ::1				localhost
    fe80::1%lo0		localhost
    
    127.0.0.1		mydevsite.com
    fe80::1%lo0		mydevsite.com
in my httpd-vhosts.conf file I have the following:

Code:
NameVirtualHost 127.0.0.1:80
    NameVirtualHost mydevsite.com:80
    
    <VirtualHost 0.0.0.0:80>
    DocumentRoot "/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/mydevsite.com"
    ServerName mydevsite.com
    </VirtualHost>
Can anyone provide some guidance on how to troubleshoot this further to get my local sites using virtual hosts to server quickly?
