Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If you want others to be able to visit your sites, you need a dns that can resolve the domain names to your server's IP. If you're only interested for this to be done in a LAN you can use the hosts file of your clients.
From the apache side, the "nameserver 10.14.236.99" is wrong. You need to add:
Also "ServerRoot localhost" is wrong, but also don't need to define a ServerRoot
I just want to see if the website gets open whenever I type :
Am I doing wrong?
Now If I do http://10.14.1.73 it opens up the page under /var/www/html/test/index.php.
I know that its name-based VirtualHosting but how Can I make it work under the name host?What entry shall i need to edit under DNS?

Your apache config is OK. It's normal that http://10.14.1.73 points to the 1st vhost.
You can do your tests by editing /etc/hosts (or c:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts in Windows) in your client and adding
If you have your own dns server you should create 2 domains: alpha.groupinfra.com, beta.groupinfra.com with each one pointing to the above IP address.
Here in our corporate, Window Admin have already setup DNS and ADS before I joined this company. What I can do is I have few Linux Machine. How Can I setup my own DNS and make it work rather than manual entry coz I want around 10 people access the same So it would be fine if I can setup my own DNS.
Please help me setting up DNS so that I can browse both the webpage.
There tons of howtos about configuring bind.
Since you're using RHEL, take a look at this one written for Fedora. In your case, you need to define 2 zones (alpha.groupinfra.com and beta.groupinfra.com), so you have to create 2 zone files. Also the reverse zone is not necessary and don't forget to change the IPs of the howto, to match your network.
Maybe I'm missing an important point. And, if I am, no need to reply, just ignore...
Anyway, if your windows systems admin has already got a windows DNS server, I'd just talk to them and get them to route both of those addresses (alpha.groupinfra.com and beta.groupinfra.com) to your RHEL computer. Then, use their DNS server to resolve addresses.
