Drop the :80 there. In fact - since you're overriding it below, it's not even

If this is litterally what you have, then it's no surprise as '.domain' is not 
a valid 'country' (TLD or Top Level Domain in DNS terms).

My guess is, you should have:
ServerName swamisalami.face2interface.com

(Educated guess really: swamisalami.face2interface.com has address

I seem to be getting too used to people obscuring their actual host names with 
fabrications for privacy reasons (<rant>could we just all stick to 
example.com for that?</rant>).
