apache2 hostname problem


Having switched ISP, I am having problems with my webserver (LAMP -
Debian Sarge, Apache2) this errer comes up: Temporary failure in name
resolution: Cannot resolve host name *.80

For some reason I cannot access the DocumentRoot (/var/www/
sailmaster.nl/) folder for the sailmaster website (www.sailmster.nl).
I can access www.sailmaster.nl/administrator and phpMyAdmin, which is
a symlink in the /var/www/sailmaster.nl/ directory. There are no
problems connecting to www.gijpstuiver.nl

Setting up the server while connected via my previous ISP, I found out
that with virtual hosting you always have to have the hostname for the
IP-address of the server first in the file which sets the virtual
hosts. My modem is in bridged mode, so the IP-address and the hostname
is passed on to the 'red' Ethernet card on my IPCop firewall, which is
set to DHCP. The IP-address is, the hostname is

I can ping all hostnames and IP-addresses (the internal IP-address of
my server as well). I think it must be some DNS-related problem, but I
haven't got a clue how to solve it.

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

Underneath is a copy of my /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

This setup worked like a charm with my previous IP-address and
