Default Similar Problem Someone please help clarify

As my name states I am very green to linux and such. What I am trying to do is set up a server on a computer I have here. I have a static IP and linksys router connecting this computer to the internet. I have been working through the perfect server instructions for fedora. I am getting the same connect to server failed error.

I followed the steps closely all the way through but I think my main confusion is what to use as the IP address, the hostname and the gateway to use throughout the setup

I imagine the gateway is the address of the router and the IP is address is my internet connections IP address,but I am not sure what to use as the host. do I have to register a domain name before I can do this setup or what should I put?
Can someone please help clarify this for me or offer some advice as to how to proceed?

Thanks
