I can imagine several scenarios, but taking into account who is asking 
the question, my first guess would be :
your pages have embedded image links like :
<img src="http://localhost/images/one.gif" />

If you just replace them by links like this :
<img src="/images/one.gif" />
it will probably start working (and keep working for localhost too).

A Belgian proverb says :
Give someone a stolen fish, and he will eat today.
Teach him how to steal a fish, and he will eat every day.

According to that precept, a suggestion :
To debug this kind of issue, a useful tool is a browser add-on like 
HttpFox (for Firefox) or Fiddler2 (for IE).
Install this add-on/plugin in your browser, activate it, and request one 
of your pages.  In the plugin window, it will then show you every 
request that the browser makes to the server(s), which correspond to the 
links in your pages.  And it will show you the result of each request 
too. This should show you the root of the problem.
