Namespace:  System
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public static UriHostNameType CheckHostName(
	string name
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.String

The host name to validate. This can be an IPv4 or IPv6 address or an Internet host name.

Return Value

Type: System.UriHostNameType
A UriHostNameType that indicates the type of the host name. If the type of the host name cannot be determined or if the host name is null or a zero-length string, this method returns Unknown.

The CheckHostName method checks that the host name provided meets the requirements for a valid Internet host name. It does not, however, perform a host-name lookup to verify the existence of the host.

The following example checks whether the host name is valid.

Console.WriteLine(Uri.CheckHostName("www.contoso.com"));
