The Connection Host , often shortened to Host , is the console that acts as a server during a Halo 3 online Multiplayer match. The other consoles in the game are clients , and rely on the host for synchronization. Neither Halo 2 nor Halo 3 use dedicated servers—that is, multiplayer matches in those games are not controlled from a server owned by Bungie or Microsoft.
