Google Cloud: How to read the hostname of a Target Server in JavaScript


What is a Target Server? The target server can be described as a backend URL name, which allows you to assign an environment for each URL. When using target servers, you can refer to the target server rather than mentioning the hard-coding backend URL. Apigee Edge support defining target servers from the UI, and also through the Management API. A web server is a devoted computer or a computer software system that works as a middleman between the final point device, such as a computer, and another server from which a user or client is seeking service. Proxy aims are set on a global scale.

A target server is a domain name that can add to the environment of any site or URL you wish—for example,

The first example describes a simple login page with the word ‘example..” The second example creates a fully functional user account with the term user in it. 

A Target Server: A target server is a full-blown PHP or MySQL instance that you may define for your scripts. It is what you use to associate your code with your targets. In other words, a target server represents your users (aka targets). You can create a target server with any web server: Apache, IIS, or Nginx. The example above is using Apache with PHP. Because Apache uses mod_deflate, that can compress the script.

A target server (or endpoint) is a specific destination for any request (web application or other kinds of request) sent to your network. The backend server, which receives the requests, identifies itself by a specific hostname. 

What are Apigee target servers? The Apigee target servers are characteristics of Apigee Edge that enable you to evaluate your backend objective URL. Target Servers are environment-specific, which will allow you to substitute a constant target URL within your API Proxy specification. It is a defined target server that would be automatically changed during the execution.

The goal of the backend server is to serve the requests that are being received and redirect them. Targets are usually custom domain names. The configuration of a target server is called a “webserver configuration.” The most common web server configurations in small hosting services are “socks5” (SOCKS5 is an IETF standard to implement a client-side proxy) and “fiddler” (Fiddler is a well-known tool that allows playing real-time audio and video without requiring any access to the server itself).

Why Would You Use a Target Server?

You need to quickly type the hostname of a target server and remember it as well. You cannot use SSH commands, so you should look for an alternate solution. One method is to use proxy or SSL proxy. You can share a session with a remote server and access it. 

Since you already have access to the target server, you need to point your browser at the target URL, and you can read the IP address of the remote server. You should remember that to find out the IP address of a target server, and you should use your browser’s address. If you are interested in the data source (domain name) from which you get the information, then a target server is better for your purposes. The example below will not work on all hosts. Say I have two sets of servers. One server is named, and the other is called 

It is difficult for you to use the backend URL name because they are not the same as the domain name. Instead, you could go ahead and do the following, assuming that you have localhost on both servers: Let us look at this in reverse: 

It will give you two paths to access each server, and when you select the first path, the name will not show up as a server name. You can also check to see what the name of the name is.

The Importance of JavaScript in a Target Server:

In JavaScript, a hostname is a command-line argument that you provide for getting the output of any command on the server. It allows you to access the information from the webserver for each command that you run. 

Command line argument

To read the hostname of a server from a command line, you need to know the exact syntax that the command you are running will need. Let’s say that you want to get the hostname of a server named ‘’ Do this in your terminal: 

./get_info -host | tr -d 's#' | head -n1 | wc -l

The output looks something like this below: It simply means that the server name is ‘example.

host operating system version darwin2.0.0 ssh2.0.0pass ssh2.0.0development1.0.0.0

Why Would You Use a Target Server?

A lot of server configurations require running a service with a custom version of jQuery. For example, you would have to set up the target server URL before you deploy the new version of jQuery. 

It is excruciating, and you don’t want to use these rules too often. To avoid doing this often, you can configure a separate service for all of the jQuery plugins you deploy and link to a simple page that does all of the magic for you, like this:

Testing your application and developing a solid plan of action when implementing cloud services and bots is a must if you have a concern about the security of your organization. If you want to add live API testing to your continuous integration and delivery, use the igram REST API testing plugin to extend the igram client testing platform.


Every primary web server has a backend URL. A backend URL is the server name that you refer to in your web application. Web applications need to keep track of these backend URLs and name them appropriately. 

The latest trend is to use namespacing. You may have used namespacing earlier. Namespacing is the process of covering a set of entities, functions, variables, objects underneath a single term umbrella. There are several ways you can do that with JavaScript, the example will give you a better understanding of the concept. They are spoiling the object worldwide.
