You don't need to configure anything in Jetty to get a hostname to work. 
  Just set up DNS or /etc/hosts properly.  As long as a name lookup 
obtains the correct IP address, Jetty/Solr will respond to it.  No 
verification of the hostname is done.

Getting Solr to answer on port 80 will likely require administrative 
privileges (root on an OS like Linux).  This is an OS requirement, not a 
Jetty requirement.  If it were me, I would set up a load balancer in 
front of Solr to answer on port 80 and forward the requests to whatever 
port Solr is actually running on.

Why do you want to change to port 80?  The most likely reason I can 
imagine is that you're going to put your Solr server on the Internet. 
You should *NOT* do that.  Unless you put some kind of proxy server in 
front of it that can detect and deny attempts to change the index, it's 
going to be a target and attackers are going to make your life very 
difficult.  Even if you prevent public users from changing the index, 
they can still send denial of service queries.
