You need to learn about mechanisms for translating names into IP
addresses. This is a fundamentals of systems administration kind of
topic; this stuff is fun to talk about, but there is a lot of
information. It is probably off-topic for this listserv.
Anyway, one way to map a name to an IP address is the /etc/hosts file,
but you sometimes have to distribute/synchronize the data to each and
every machine that needs to know a particular name:
Another good way is DNS:
Also, network information servers like NIS and LDAP can hold name-data
that Unix clients can reference as well.
The O'Reilly Press (http://www.oreilly.com/, Tim O'Reilly, who is a

who has a similar last name!) has many good books on these kinds of
topics. Here are a couple of titles that are worth considering:
