It sounds like you want to add an entry to the hosts file so you can map a name examplename to an IP address

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosts_(file) shows where your host file is likely to be located.

Example:     rhino.acme.com          # source server     x.acme.com              # x client host
