Unable to create URL with wampserver [Resolved]

I am trying to create a URL for a site hosted through wampserver, but no matter what I do I am unable to get the URL to work. The site is online because I am able to connect through the servers IP address, though.

(I should also mention that this site is only available on an intranet)

hosts file:

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#   127.0.0.1       localhost
#   ::1             localhost

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1 www.socialclub.com    #also tried public/private IP, still only works locally

vhosts.conf:

# Virtual Hosts
#
# Required modules: mod_log_config

# If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
#
# Please see the documentation at 
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/vhosts/>
# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
#
# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host
# configuration.

#
# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for all requests that do not
# match a ServerName or ServerAlias in any <VirtualHost> block.
#

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName localhost
    DocumentRoot "E:DataUsers Appswampwwwsocialclub"
</VirtualHost>


<Directory "E:DataUsers Appswampwwwsocialclub">
    AllowOverride All
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow from all
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
</Directory>
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "E:DataUsers Appswampwwwsocialclub"
    ServerName www.socialclub.com
</VirtualHost>

Every guide I’ve looked at says that this should work, but it only works locally. What do I need to do for the URL to work from other computers?
