Allow to manage hosts name instead of URL

I would like to suggest to add a name field for scan that will be associated to the url.
Ideally, the openvas behavior is efficient. You define first an host and then a scan that could be scheduled in the future and maybe scan only a part of the website.
Thanks to this, if you combine it with the group management you'll be able to manage :
- Your customers by groups - Each customer/group will have some hosts/name - Each host will have some scans - Each host will be able to be computed/analyze with a time aspect!

Hope you'll enjoy those proposal.

Anyway, arachni is a good tool and can go further....

    I may add general tagging but the hosts aspect doesn't really translate well to this. OpenVAS separates its targets as hosts because that's what it's scanning, Arachni on the other hand scans a website as represented by a seed URL.
