Make guest name visible to host

I have Ubuntu running in VMware Player. I am able to access an Apache instance on this VM by using the IP address but not by machine name.

"If the host is Windows:
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ open file ""hosts"" and add a line:

IP Address Hostname

example:

192.168.1.5 ubuntu

If the host is Linux

sudo vi /etc/hosts

Then the same."
