n my nginx conf file, I have :

  listen       80;
    server_name  $hostname;

 if I do netstat I see that it is listening on , is there any
workaround in nginx.conf , to make it listen to $hostname:80  ?  where
$hostname is coming from system ?

I tried multiple combinations with no success so far.
