HTTPS Webserver Configuration

I have configured web server in HTTPS in RedHat ( RHEL5 )

I changed the file

# /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Documentroot /var/www/html/
DirectoryIndex index.html

and I created the certificate in

# cd /etc/pki/tls/certs/
# make server.key
# make server.crt
# cp server.key /etc/pki/tls/private/

and then I edited the file

# cd /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

these are the following lines that I edited

85 ServerName
112 SSLCertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/server.crt
119 SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/private/server.key

then I restarted the service httpd

the I opened the brower and then I entered the URL:

it came as
I want it to come as, automatically

Note: One of my friend told me , ServerAlias should be used , but I cant understand

Kindly please help me , Thanks in advance
