  • Host Web is the site where an app is installed and the App web is the site which gets created underneath Host Web. SharePoint components like (lists, content types etc) can be deployed through the app both in the App Web as well as the Host web.

    The special website to which the app is deployed is called an app web. The website to which the app is installed is called the host web. Although the app web has its own isolated domain, it is in the same site collection as the host web. (One exception to this rule is when the app is installed with tenant scope. In that scenario, the app web is in the site collection of the corporate app catalog.)
