Host name and Domain Name?

When I signed up for Comcast ISP, They issued me a Host name and Domain Name. I accidently changed them. What are they and how do I find out what they were?

I need lots of help!

They are changed, you might call, but I would not hold out much hope for them. The tech's can tell you how to get to the new one.

Re: Host name and Domain Name?

While Comcast does associate a host name with each IP address, it is not needed for your computer or router settings. With Comcast, you are not on a Domain, so this is also not used.

FWIW, my host name currently has Michael listed.
