Host

The word host on the Internet generally refers to any machine that has its own IP address. Some hosts may have more than one IP address. Even machines that are not general-purpose computers, e.g., routers and switches, are called hosts, so long they have an IP address. The majority of hosts, however, are general-purpose computers.
