Nicholas!

did you try michaelsrogers.com or .net, I have two domain names.

look at this and tell me what I did wrong.  I find that on my network I can also type "laptop-1"
and still see the page.

# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.
# This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you specify
# it explicitly to prevent problems during startup.
#
# If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.
#
#ServerName localhost
ServerName 10.0.0.101

One thing is I am not understanding the "your host" does this mean "me" as in my computer
or the ISPs computer where the names server is?

  I missed the fact that you were testing from your internal network. In 
  that case, you need to use the suggestions from Razi Khaja to be able to 
  access your site using that name locally. However, the two suggestions I 
  made could be affecting external connectivity (I get "connection 
  refused" for your site at the moment, but perhaps you have just shut 
  down Apache).

  Cheers,
  Nicholas Sherlock
