No Host DNS record found - hosts edited

Using Docker for Windows, I have edited the etc/hosts file in Windows 10. Locally ping answers correctly 127.0.0.1 yet on the Devilbox UI vhosts page it shows it can’t find the entry. This happens regardless of starting the bind service. Has this happened to anyone? How is bind any different than direct entries in etc/hosts? In any case the site does load using the vhost name.
