Create a new host address for a specific internet host. The internet host can be specified in a null terminated ASCII string and include either the physical host address or the DNS name of a host machine. Hence, an IPV4Host (’www.voxilla.org’) can be directly declaired in this manner.

Parameters:

host dns or physical address of an Internet host.

Reimplemented from ost::IPV4Address.
