a) not exactly the right forum.
b) don't capitalize. It hurts the eye and is obsolete since 1874 or so when Remington brought the Remington No 2 to the market which implemented a "shift" key.
c) you don't really need it, you might want it because it looks more beautiful (which is somewhat contradictory to using all CAPITALS)

Now to the solution. There are multiple. I will describe an easy one:

On every PC edit the "etc/hosts" file (this actually exists on Windows machines as well). It is located under:

%windir\system32\drivers\etc

You will find a few files with the extension ".sam". Those are the examples. Copy hosts.sam to hosts. IMPORTANT: make sure that it really does not have an extension. Windows tends to hide it nowadays.

Then edit the hosts file with an editor like "notepad". Put a line:

192.168.1.1    www.mynet.home        www

into the host file. Save it. On that single PC you can now address the server using
http://www.mynet.home/
or
http://www/

Repeat for all 10 PCs. The DNS solution is probably a bit hard to describe in a short forum post and it depends on the DNS server software used as well and it depends on the client PCs, whether or not they use this DNS server at all. So DNS based requires some more details from your side first.
