This is called IP name resolution, a feature which has to be enabled in the preferences, under Name Resolution. It depends on the Domain Name System (DNS) to be able to provide you the names of the IP addresses, or reads the file /etc/hosts for any name provided there.

Many addresses on the internet will have names registered in the DNS, for local addresses (on the LAN that is) it depends on the local network setup. Eg. some home routers do provide this, some don't.
