A host name is a unique name or label assigned to any device that is connected to a specific computer network. It facilitates the differentiation of different machines or devices connected to the Internet, a network and/or both.


A host name is used when a web client makes an HTTP request to a host. The user making the request can specify the IP address of the server rather than the host name, but that is now unusual on the Internet. Host names are more convenient for users than numeric IP addresses. Companies, organizations, and individuals frequently choose host names for their websites that can be easily remembered by users.
