Default Accessing control panel on domain name

System Info

OS - Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS
ISPConfig -

Installed ISPConfig using the very excellent Tutorial @ http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ot-ispconfig-3

Everything work great after install the only issue I have is accessing the control panel using the domain name. I have no problem accessing the control panel using a local network ip eg.. https://192.168.1.***:8080

Now on page 6 of the tutorial just before you add the alias for webmail after you install and configure squirrelmail it says

You can now access SquirrelMail from your web site as follows:

You can also access it from the ISPConfig control panel vhost (after you have installed ISPConfig, see the next chapter) as follows (this doesn't need any configuration in ISPConfig):


But everytime I type in http://server1.example.com:8080/squirrelmail or http://server1.example.com:8080/webmail cause I created that alias, I keep getting this page cannont be displayed. I also get the same thing when I type https://server1.example.com:8080 to access the control panel.
I would so like to beable to access the control panel using the last example.

Not sure if i missed something and was supposed to create a subdomain for it or just dns records

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated
