  Chapter 7 - Host Name Resolution
Host name resolution is the process of resolving a host name to an IP address before the source host sends the initial IP packet.
If the host name is the same as the local host name, the host name is resolved to an IP address that is assigned to the local host, and the name resolution process stops.
After the host name is resolved to a destination IP address, Windows forwards the packet to the next-hop IP address for the destination (either the destination or a neighboring router).

  Hostname - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Host names are typically used in an administrative capacity and may appear in computer browser lists, active directory lists, IP Address to hostname resolutions, email headers etc. They are human readable nick-names which ultimately correlate to unique network hardware MAC addresses.
It is possible for a single host to have several hostnames; but generally the OS of the host prefers to have one hostname that the host uses for itself.
Hacker tradition deprecates dull, institutional-sounding names in favour of punchy, humorous, and clever coinages (except that it is considered appropriate for the official public gateway machine of an organisation to bear the organisation's name or acronym).

 Domain Name System article - Domain Name System host names domain names Internet address mail exchange servers - ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
The Domain Name System or DNS is a system that stores information about host names and domain names on networks, such as the Internet.
Many host names may correspond to a single IP address: combined with virtual hosting, this allows a single machine to serve many web sites.
Alternatively a single host name may correspond to many IP addresses: this can facilitate fault tolerance and load distribution, and also allows a site to move physical location seamlessly.

 ITS UTnic: Host Names   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Host names are used to identify the host from other computers in a domain for purposes of e-mail, Web, and other forms of network communication.
Host names are usually shown as part of a larger domain name.
In addition to RFC 1178, RFC 2100 "The Naming of Hosts" is an interesting commentary — in iambic pentameter — on the difficulty of deciding upon an acceptably distinctive host name for one's computer.

 Name-based Virtual Host Support - Apache HTTP Server
IP-based virtual hosts use the IP address of the connection to determine the correct virtual host to serve.
Name-based virtual hosting is usually simpler, since you need only configure your DNS server to map each hostname to the correct IP address and then configure the Apache HTTP Server to recognize the different hostnames.
To use name-based virtual hosting, you must designate the IP address (and possibly port) on the server that will be accepting requests for the hosts.

 RFC 623 (rfc623) - Comments on on-line host name service
The notion of having a single host maintain this data base clearly has the weakness that anyone wishing to obtain a copy of the data may be faced with the situation that the serving host is not available when the data is desired.
Therefore, I propose that the NIC maintain the master data base, and one other host be responsible for maintaining a secondary copy, which is to be updated to be equal to the NIC's at periodic and often intervals, such as once a day.
Further, I volunteer UCSB to be that secondary host.

 InetAddress (Java 2 Platform SE 5.0)
An instance of an InetAddress consists of an IP address and possibly its corresponding host name (depending on whether it is constructed with a host name or whether it has already done reverse host name resolution).
By default, the result of positive host name resolutions are cached forever, because there is no general rule to decide when it is safe to remove cache entries.
The result of unsuccessful host name resolution is cached for a very short period of time (10 seconds) to improve performance.

 Host Registration FAQ
Cornell's Domain Name policy, effective June 2004, requires three-part cornell.edu domain names to be registered, and domain names purchased with university funds to be recorded, at http://DNSdomain.cit.cornell.edu.
The host name should be in lowercase, should start with a letter, and can consist of alphanumeric characters and dashes.
If the domain name is to be served by Cornell's domain name servers, name the Network Operations Center as the technical contact and the department requesting the domain name as administrative/billing contact for the domain.

 Virtual Host Name Service
A 'virtual host name' is a name that is substituted for the actual host name in a WWW URL that the WWW server recognizes as associated with an alternative root document directory.
Since virtual host names are usually used to advertise an entrance to your site and to form the basis of an intuitive WWW 'bookmark', the answer to this question is 'no'.
URLs that use your virtual host name to refer to an image map must use the image mapping mechanism that is internal to the WWW server rather than the 'imagemap' program.

 Convert Host Name to IP Address or Find IP address of a host
However, many computers host many domains so the host name may be one of the domain names hosted or it could be something totally different.
It is also common for the domain name to be converted to the IP address of the host machine that runs the www sub domain.
For example, a host machine that converts host names to IP addresses using DNS may be called dns.hcidata.com and a host machine that is a web server may be called www.hcidata.com.

 What is the Hosts file?
The "Hosts" file in Windows and other operating systems is used to associate host names with IP addresses.
Host names are the www.yahoo.com addresses that you see every day.
Computers have a host address of their own - it is known as the "localhost" address, with an IP address of 127.0.0.1 which it uses to refer to itself.

 Microsoft TCP/IP Host Name Resolution Order
When troubleshooting name resolution issues, it is important to narrow down whether the application is resolving a NetBIOS name or a host name.
If the name exists in one of the resources, such as a DNS server or a Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) server and the client is not resolving the name correctly, focus your attention on troubleshooting that specific resource.
If the host name is correctly entered in a host file, it will be resolved before the client attempts to query DNS.

 What is host? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
The system that contains the data is called the host, while the computer at which the user sits is called the remote terminal.
For example, there are many companies that host files, programs, applications or even a Web server for companies and individuals.
In the case of a Web server, it means that they provide the hardware, software, and communications lines required by the server, but the content on the server may be controlled by someone else.

by its host name (a text string such as "bitsy.mit.edu") which consists of the machine name (e.g., "bitsy") and the domain name (e.g., "mit.edu" refers to the main MIT network).
The domain name is the name of a network associated with an organization.
Rather than require individual machines, applications, or users to keep up with the constant changes in host names and IP addresses, a series of special DNS servers across the world (known as "name servers") keep track of the name/address information for all the computers on the Internet.

 Dynamic DNS Host Name Registrations
When your computer running Windows 2000 belongs to a Domain Name Server zone (for example, test.companyname.com) with a name that is different from the Microsoft Active Directory (AD) domain name (for example, companyname.com), the computer joins both domains during startup.
So for a computer belonging to a DNS zone (for example, test.companyname.com) that has a name different from the AD domain name (for example, companyname.com) to which the computer is joined, the Domain Name Server zone file is always registered in the Domain Name Server zone because this is the computer´s PrimaryDNSSuffix by default.
ATTENTION: Please be aware that this change in settings registers the host name twice; once in your AD zone file (for example, companyname.com) and once in the subdomain´s zone file (for example, test.companyname.com).

 HostName Commander for Windows XP/2000 and Windows ME/98
For example, if the domain name of your web site is www.mycoolsite.com, then during the development phase you want the host name www.mycoolsite.com to point to your development server (or to your own computer, if you don't have a separate development server).
When the development is finished and the site goes live, you want the name www.mycoolsite.com to point to your production server, to make you able to test the live web site and see it just like the rest of the world does.
When you need to test the web site on the development server, you would use HostName Commander to make the host name www.mycoolsite.com to resolve to the IP address of your development server (such as 127.0.0.1, if it's your own computer, or something like 192.168.0.5, if the development server is on your LAN).
