It appears you are trying to create the list via the web create UI as
that is the only thing which issues the exact "Unknown virtual host"
error message.

That error basically says that the host name in the URL that you went
to, e.g. http://host_name/mailman/create, does not exist in Mailman's
VIRTUAL_HOSTS dictionary which is created by add_virtualhost directives
in Defaults.py and mm_cfg.py.

I'm guessing from your '*** *** *** ***' that you actually used an IP
address when visiting that page, possibly an 'internal network' one. You
don't want to create the list with such an address for its web host.
