I see your point, but "virtueller Host" is a well known translation
and IMHO should be used  - at least in some cases -  with preference.
For References that directly refer to the <VirtualHost> directive
it may also be feasible to use "VirtualHost", e.g., for things like
"VirtualHost-Konfiguration" or "VirtualHost-Beispiel".

A valid alternative is also "Virtual Host-Beispiele", because of
"Virtual Host" being a proper name, but my preference is the variant
with the hyphens.

How about: "Beschreibung der Zuweisung von virtuellen Servern"?

just my 0.02 :)
