I'm not quite sure what this does. Again, any help at all is really appreciated.
You must type in an FQDN that points to your server. For example, you could get a dyndns.org address that points to your router's public IP address (if it is dynamic, otherwise you could get yourself a "real" domain), and then you can use this dyndns.org address as your server's hostname.
