Canonically Unique Host

The Basics

A Canonically-unique host is a FQDN that will canonically resolve to a designated address or set of addresses. Not to be confused with a locally-unique-host.

In-depth information

A Canonically-unique host is defined by remote authoritative sources; usually through DNS. When resolving a peer’s hostname, you will most likely use an external source for resolution unless you have the following implemented:


  • Haven primarily uses @canonically-unique-host resolution while I2P only uses locally-unique-host resolution.
