I am able to connect to your site. Do you have an entry in your hosts file? – Anagio Mar 11 '12 at 6:54
Seems to be working now. – toomanyairmiles Mar 11 '12 at 6:58
Thanks. Problem is that I've tested at home. It works fine when I've tested outside my home. – Tran Dinh Thoai Mar 11 '12 at 11:08
Have you set your private IP as your web servers in the configuration file? – Anagio Jun 10 '12 at 6:01

You can add an entry to your hosts file to map the domain name to the local IP address, then you should be able to use your domain name locally.
