Unable to login to SharePoint with different hostname

I just installed Sharepoint 2010. My machine name is FarhanVM, so the Central Administration URL is http://farhanvm:9999/

This is setup on the domain farhantest.com (I have a DNS server running so that it resolves)
I setup sharepoint.farhantest.com to be my machine running Sharepoint/IIS

When I create a Web Application using the hostname farhanvm, everything works great. But, if the Web Application's hostname is sharepoint.farhantest.com, I receive a login prompt, but am unable to login even as the Administrator.

How do I fix this problem so that Sharepoint.FarhanTest.com works?

If there is no machine named sharepoint on your network then this can't work. Can you name your machine sharepoint??

There is. Sharepoint.farhantest.com is set to the same IP as FarhanVM. Going to SharePoint.FarhanTest.com gets me to a login page. But I cannot login, even as Administrator, from the login page.

Sharepoint must be accessed from a separate machine to have a different host-name work. I just used IE on the host machine (not the VM) to get into SharePoint.FarhanTest.com site and it worked.

If I understand you correctly, you are unable to access sharepoint.farhantest.com from the SharePoint server itself, but you can from a separate machine.

If that is correct, try disabling the loopback check on the SharePoint server. See this KB, and look at method #2 to resolve:
