Seems like your did not configure your host to use fully qualified domain name. This should be done while configure your host. Maybe you could use command
# netconfig
to configure it. You also could set under 'visible_hostname' option in squid.conf

Had same problem, verify your /etc/hosts file, make sure that your server is listed correctly, i.e.: alias1
