Computing Usenet - A world-wide distributed interactive system consisting of "newsgroups" with names which are classified hierarchically by subject. "Articles" or "messages" are "posted" to these newsgroups by and read by people on computers with the appropriate software. Some usenet groups are "moderated", meaning that the posts are sent through a moderator for approval before they are displayed. 
Computing Virtual Host - A computer which can be forced to respond to multiple IP addresses and provide various services (typically different Web services) on each. Each of these IP addresess (which usually each have their own hostname) operate as if they were separate hosts on separate machines, although they are really all the same host. Therefore, they are called "virtual" hosts. An example of virtual hosting is when an Internet Service Provider "hosts" World-Wide Web and other services for several customers on the same computer but gives the appearence that each of these services use separate servers. 
Computing Web Address - A domain name or URL; usually the location currently being viewed in the web browser.
