A host name is a character string that specifies a computer on a network.
In order to perform communication on a network, IP addresses that act as addresses are required.
However, it is difficult to recognize IP addresses as they are written in numbers.
Host names show them in alphanumeric characters.
- Host name: google.com (IP address: 126.96.36.199)
