[Koha] full admin interface

I had a feeling this was what the issue was.
I will have a look at how I can get my IP based setup to work. 
My hostname does resolve using my local DNS server, but having it recognise a subdomain (or virtual host or what ever it is) I am unsure about
That's a poor explanation. What I mean is if I type the name of my Ubuntu server into the browser it resolves e.g http://myubuntuserver, but if I typed admin-myubuntuserver or any sort of variation I do not know how to have this resolve 
I thought adding a ServerName admin-myubuntuserver in the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/{instance name} is this all that's needed to fix this?
