Host name

Specifies the IP address, domain name system (DNS) host name with domain name suffix, or the DNS host name that clients use to request a Web application resource, such as a servlet, JSP file, or HTML page.

For example, when the DNS name is myhost, the host alias is myhost:8080, where 8080 is the port. A URL request can refer to the snoop servlet on the host alias as: http://myhost:8080/servlet/snoop.

When there is no port number specified for a host alias, the default port is 80. For existing virtual hosts, the default host name and port reflect the values specified at product installation or configuration. For new virtual hosts, the default can be * to allow any value or no specification.

Data type String
Default *

You can also use the IP address or the long or short DNS name.


Specifies the port where the Web server accepts client requests. Specify a port value in conjunction with the host name.

The default reflects the value specified at product setup. The default might be 80, 81, 9060 or a similar value.

Data type Integer
Default 9060
