Other people use this term in very different ways. To some people it means using having multiple IP addresses bound to a single network interface. To others it means multiple websites on one server.
Unfortunately, this is a common and "standards blessed" way to refer to any host with multiple interfaces/addresses (real or virtual). For example, from the "Terminology" section, 1.1.3, of RFC1122, "Requirements for Internet Hosts -- Communication Layers," says, Multihomed A host is said to be multihomed if it has multiple IP addresses. For a discussion of multihoming, see Section 3.3.4 below. -- Crist J.
