You either need DNS setup on the lan that the clients use for resolving, or if we're only talking about a few computers, you can manually edit the hosts file on each machine.

Should you already have an environment setup that supports DNS, you can use windows command line utility to ping a hostname and it will resolve to an ip.  In the example below you can see that "hostname" was resolved to 10.1.10.1

To open windows command line:
Hit the (Windows Key) + (R) to bring up the "run" prompt.
Type "cmd" (no quotes) and hit OK.
C:\>ping hostname
 
Pinging hostname.domain.org [10.1.10.1] with 32 bytes of data:
 
Reply from 10.1.10.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from 10.1.10.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from 10.1.10.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from 10.1.10.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
 
Ping statistics for 10.1.10.1:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms
