    If you're accessing Web pages from the server itself, you can just use 'localhost' or '127.0.0.1' to see the pages being served. From any other computer on your LAN, use your Web server's IP address. If you have hostnames set in /etc/hosts, you can substitute the server's hostname for its IP.

    If you want to access your Web server from outside your LAN, you can have your router forward port 80 to your server's address (assuming you're using port 80 for HTTP). Then you access it using your external network address, as reported by the router.

    Buy a domain name.
    (Googling for "register domain name" or such will give you more sites with similar services.)
