I want to remove this and want to use my web application name instead of the server name. hope a quick answer.

The default HTTP port is 80. However, if you already run a webserver like Apache, lightttpd or nginx, you should instead reverse-proxy the 8080 URI and close down Port 8080 in your firewall.
