you can set a custom DNS name in PRTG itself. The web server will then listen to the set up DNS name as well as to the IP address. In the web interface, just go to Setup | System & Website, there provide the DNS name under setting DNS Name. Now you should be able to use the web interface with the hostname.
Best regards
