Yes. The browser must somehow know wich IP adress to connect to. If it doesn't know that,
it can't connect.

If you have you're own DNS, edit the zone file. If you don't run the DNS yourself, contact
whoever does that. Anyway, this really has nothing to do with Apache.

Just for testing the setup, you can add and to the hosts file
on the machine your running the browser on. The exact location of the file depends on your
operating system.

Then it's pretty obvious that it isn't an Apache problem. If the browser never even contacts
the web server, then how could the web server answer correctly?

The fact that it worked with is probably because there's a DNS record pointing
the domain name to the IP of your web server.
