This is why I changed the sequence of words to avoid the
situation where I needed to use a "three component term".

I have some understanding what "matching" may be,
but the word is something like an "operator" for me
and I am missing the "operands" in this line.

When I look into the document you are referencing I read
"This document attempts to explain exactly what Apache does
 when deciding what virtual host to serve a hit from."
And I am wondering whether "matching" really is the best
notion for this mechanism ... what about "mapping"?
(Which notion is used to explain similar mechanisms when
describing the "alias" type directives etc. which also
translate URLs to path names and evaluation contexts?)

What about "Tiefergehende Erörterung der Mechanismen für
die Zuordnung (Abbildung?) von URLs zu Virtual Hosts"?
("In-depth discussion of the mechanisms for mapping URLs
to Virtual Hosts" - this would show me the "operands".)
