Host not found

This error means the hostname in a web address could not be found. For example:

http://www.example.com/news

The hostname here is www.example.com.

This error nearly always means the hostname part of a web address is wrong, or that the website it belongs to was unavailable at the time of testing. Essentially, the website could not be ‘found’.
