What is the hostname and why is it needed?
The online name of the computer, or hostname, is a symbolic name assigned to a network device which can be used to provide access to it in different ways. This name is assigned to each device in the network. That means that the hostname can be defined not only for your PC, but also for a laptop, tablet, smartphone, or even the washing machine if it is connected to the Internet. The hostname can be expected to determine your region and Internet operator. If you have a dynamic IP address, the name of the computer is constantly changing with each new Internet connection.
