First, in the future, please only post relevant excerpts from your config
file unless there is a very good reason to do otherwise.  Posting entire
config files wastes both bandwidth and the time of the people answering
your questions.

On to your problem.  I see at least two issues:

1. When specifying pathnames with spaces, you must surround them with
quotation marks.  That is the cause of the doc root error.

2. From my little place on the internet, those hostnames in the ServerName
directives don't resolve to an IP address.  You need have DNS resolution
working if you expect these sites to be accessible from the internet.
For that, you should contact your DNS provider.

Good luck!
