testing locally with links and images using relative links

Hello, I'm wondering if there is anything I can setup in either my Coldfusion administration or using Dreamweaver so I can use absolute links while viewing images and testing links locally on a development coldfusion development server.

For example I have a logo that I set so when clicked it would be /index.cfm which would point to my index page under my folder IE : http://localhost:8500/www.sitedomain.com/index.cfm

When I click it of course I get a missing page message because it's pointing to the very root of the folder which would be : http://localhost:8500/index.cfm which causes a 404 File not found: /index.cfm error but I know that if I post the page on the live server it would then link to the home page.

I guess I'm just trying to get as much use and testing on my local development server as possible so I can test there before launching live pages.
