Web Sharing - can I change the location of the shared database?

Post

I'm a newbie so this is probably a very simple question demonstrating my ignorance!  I've read lots of threads and the help files and I still don't know the answer.

 

I'm evaluation 10.0.1 and hoping to use it as the 'backbone app' for a business I support.  The first thing I want to set-up is a Customer Management function and I've found the template.  So far, so good. 

 

However, I'm confused by the statement "share over the web" - that's what I want to do but cannont work out how to do that.  I've followed the instructions to enable Web Sharing but the only option I get is for the local IP address, the problem is that's of the "192.168.1.x" variety - so how can an external user access the data over the web, surely I need to place the data at the end of a DNS/ domain or some such?

 

Probably very silly but I'm stuck and I'd really appreciate some pointers so I can take things further.
