    What is a host?

    A host is a device that performs server functions in client-server services. To understand what a host is, you need to look at which particular system this concept is used for.

    TCP / IP Host

    If the term “host” is mentioned in the text without any decryption, most likely it is a computer running on a local or global network using a TCP / IP interface, having its own IP address and domain name (the latter is not always), performing maintenance functions for other computers.

    For example, a host can be a server of a local network that performs some functions of servicing requests from other computers of this network. But if you are in the same local network, send a ping command to the computer of the user V. Pupkin, then this computer can also be considered the host that responds to your request.

    What does a host in internet statistics mean

    In Internet statistics, a host means a unique visitor for this site. The uniqueness of the user is determined by IP-address. The more hosts, the higher the popularity of the site. Surely you paid attention to the attendance counters of different sites.So, the number of hosts (unique visitors) is one of the parameters that they control along with hits and sessions.

    What is a host process

    The people running the task manager in Microsoft Windows probably paid attention to the svchost.exe processes in the process list, primarily because of their large number. In fact, these host processes are kind of containers that group Windows system services according to their priorities and access levels. That is why many svchost.exe processes run simultaneously.
