As I already tried to explain, that's not about "both parts", but 
rather about configuration you wrote for both parts.  It's up to 
you to change configuration to something consistent.  You have to 
either change your OS configuration (to ensure that appropriate 
names are resolvable on nginx start), or change your nginx 
configuration (to ensure it won't try to resolve names).
