    In computer networking, localhost is a hostname that means this computer. It is used to access the network services that are running on the host via its loopback network interface. Using the loopback interface bypasses any local network interface hardware.

    In order to avoid confusion in local networks, for them some subnets (ranges) of IP addresses have been allocated. For example, IP 192.168.0.1 always means a local network device. You can use this IP for connections only on the same network. For example, network your computer with your router.
    The IP address 127.0.0.1 always points the device to itself. It's an IP device in its own network (it's the only one). The fact is that using the same protocol and method of connection for any connections is much more convenient than to invent something for every case of life. Therefore, the connection to the program on the same computer is also done by IP. Thus, it will connect to the program on the same computer, on the computer from the local network or on the computer (server) on the Internet does not differ in any way.
    Under this internal network is given the entire subnet 127.0.0.1/8, that is, absolutely all IP starting with 127. In fact, this is very useful when you, for example, run a web server for debugging and development and can listen for connections, for example, On 127.0.0.2:80 and 127.0.0.3:80 (in fact simultaneously one port at one IP can be borrowed only once).
    Localhost is the alias 127.0.0.1. The word localhost is often written more conveniently than the IP address with its dots. The essence is exactly the same as that of domain sites. This is the name that indicates the specific IP address. Domain names of the Internet are contained on the name servers (DNS server), but in the current form (the domain owner can change the IP the domain points to). For a local machine, these entries are stored in the Windows \ System32 \ drivers \ etc \ hosts file (in the case of Windows).
    When you connect to a name (for example, "localhost"), the operating system looks for a locally specified IP for that name.
    In fact, the connection always opens over IP. If you specify localhost, the program will simply first turn it into IP (in 127.0.0.1), and then connect to this IP.

    In computer networking, localhost is a hostname, which means that this computer. It is used to access network services that are running on the host through its loopback network interface. Using the loopback interface bypasses any local network interface hardware.

    The local loopback mechanism is useful for testing software during independence of any networking configuration independently. For example, if a computer is configured to provide a website, then the local web browser running http:
