    well, a host is a computer connected to a network. Like in LAN, you can call the connected PCs as hosts. Although you can use words like computer-1 etc but host is a standard word and has the same meaning.

    No, a host may not me in a domain.
    Just like you say node in graphs, the same way you say host in networking.

    Hope this made it clear for you. :D

    The system that contains the data is called the host, while the computer at which the user sits is called the remote terminal. A computer that is connected to a TCP/IP network, including the Internet. Each host has a unique IP address.
    "Hosts" may refer to the hosts file, a file that serves to look up Internet Protocol addresses.
