hostname() not giving useful results

On Mac OS X, on my personal machine, when I do hostname() I get the
text that is located at:
the field labeled "Computer name"
which for me is kee.kagi.com
On another machine at a colo, when I do hostname() I get the machine
name shown in the text under that field:
"Other computers on your local subnet can access your computer at
So on one machine I get a useful domain name that the external world
can use when hitting a DNS, and on the colo machine I get a name that
is only useful on that local subnet.
Why is there a difference?
How do I get a useful domain name for the colo machine?
Thanks, Kee Nethery
