	The remote web server machine, which may be owned by the
	content provider or even on the content provider's premises.

	Because it is not transmitted in the HTTP request (at least
	for HTTP/1.0), as the destination server already knows its
	own name (actually some sorts of virtual server require this
	information, but it is sent separately from the URL, e.g.:

	GET /xxxxxx HTTP/1.1
	Host: www.sihope.com

	but only relatively recent clients and servers use and 
	understand Host headers.
