This is pretty clear!

Look how you specified the host name in your apache config file.
I mean the hostname of the Zope instance. Try to resolve this
name with dig, host or even ping. I suspect it does not work
due to changes in your DNS or something like that.
Just enter the servers you are always dealing with into their
/etc/hosts file to avoid problems with DNS (long timeout, disappearing
like you experienced)
