What is Host Header and how to configure it?

Posted by Paul on January 11, 2011

 

Host Header is a third piece of information to identify a web site.

Thus the web site can be identified by using the following:

    • IP Address
    • Port
    • Host Header

Host Headers was introduced in HTTP 1.1

Eg: http://www.google.com

www.google.com is the host header

Configuration in IIS

We can configure host header in IIS using inetmgr application.

After configuration we need to publish the host header in the WINS (Windows Name Service) or DNS (Domain Name Service) depending on the site is an intranet or internet site.
