You are not asking for any content in the url.

Furthermore, if you use a private blockchain, any ENS requests (the ethereum DNS) won't work unless you set up a resolver yourself, which is a bit involved, and probably better left for later after you get the basics working.

Judging from how you ask your question, I would recommend you to read the documentation thoroughly to get a good grasp on what swarm is and how it is intended to work. You can find it here:
