OK. Now I understand the confusion. We use 'host' in a number of places
where we really mean 'domain' and it can be particularly confusing for
email addresses where the 'domain' may just have an MX record and not be
a 'machine' at all.

However, this terminology is deeply embedded and affects translations if
it were to be changed, so I don't propose to actually change it at this
