    Every computer that joins a network has an IP address, as far as the internet goes this would mean that inorder to access any website you would need to know the IP address of the computer that hosts it, so with the help of DNS (Domain Name Service) you can identify and route to, a computer by name instead of needing to type in the IP address.
    The "host" is the actual computer you are trying to connect to
