I'm assuming this is purely for internal use? Or do you want to host the websites on the Internet?

If hosting only on your LAN you'll need an internal DNS server, then you can make records for any websitename you want (eg: myfirstwebsite.domainname.com, mysecondwebsite.domainname.com, and so on ...)

For Internet hosting you'll need a  fixed IP addres(ses) from your provider then adjust your firewall to forward requests to your host

This is a somewhat over-simplified explanation, tell us what it is you want to do exactly to get more specific information.

You'll have to install a DNS server for that, either on your Ubuntu or another server (physical or virtual, can be a Windows server to of course) ... There are plenty of interesting howto's out there...

example: http://askubuntu.com/questions/330148/how-do-i-do-a-complete-bind9-dns-server-configuration-with-a-hostname

It starts with installing BIND9...

Hi

as spravtek said you need the DNS server that is one will make the resolution from name to ip, i assume you want to access to that http server from other client isn't it?

The other options can be to modify the hosts file from the clients in order they know that url
for unix server /etc/hosts

for Windows:  %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

do something like this:
102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com

Usually the first step to look for a name is look at the host file if that name does not exist there then it will look at the dns.

Regards.
