to define an alternate URL or port for an application. For example, http://mySite.access.com or http://10.112.200.30 or http://machine_name:9081. Why do you ask?

Does that mean that my deployed web application can be requested from different URLs. Can you tell me why do I need it ? Can't a single port be good enough ? I also understand that these ports belong to a single machine, Am I right?

The virtual host ports refer to the port numbers of the machine on which the app server is running. So, the answer to a part of ur question is yes!

Virtual Host are for security reasons. it defines which webservers can talk to the appservers. if the webserver is not defined in the virtual hosts the appserver won't serve the response back.
