Host header names are an easy to assign multiple web sites to the same IP and port number. Once you have the default website set up with an ip and port number you set up the other sites you want to host.
On these site you specify the host header name, eg dudbolt.com. If you have another web site eg dudbolt.co.uk, you set up another site and change the host header to match. This doesnt work on some browsers as they dont pass the host header to IIS. IIS needs to see what site the browser is requesting so that i can give the the correct site back again.
