You have to configure a zone somename.com in the DNS server, which sould contain a record A for host www coresponding to the IP of web server

This seems to be a local server on your computer.
If you want to host your website on your machine, for developing purposes or for really small sites, you can use a software called ngrok.com.
Or you need to buy a hosting from somewhere like godaddy.com , and then either buy a domain name from them and they will auto-configure it to the purchased hosting , or you might need to edit the domain name DNS to point to the hosting if there were purchased from two different places.

In this case you need to write this line in C:\Windows\System32\driver\etc\hosts
