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"));
