Edits a host – only changes specified parameters.

The name of the host to create must be at least two characters long, at most 100 characters long, a valid host according to RFC 3986 - section 3.2.2 host , and match the following regular expression:


PageSeeder supports IPv4 addresses and regular names.

The hostname is not case-sensitive and it is not case-preserving: it is always converted to lower case before being stored in the database.


This service requires administrator.


The updated host is returned as a <host> element and includes any existing <alias>

  <host id="1" name="" external="false" virtual="true">
      <alias id="3" name=""/>
