It means you can set up virtual http sites without needing a seperate IP
address for each one. Very useful if you run a large number of virtual
hosts. (I don't have 100 spare IP addresses)

All my virtual hosts point to the IP address of my webserver. Apache just
looks at the Host: header of the incoming request to work out which
virtual server directory to look in.
