The file:// protocol *always* has a hostname; it's frequently abbreviated as an empty string, which represents 'localhost' implicitly. According to RFC 1738 (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1738): A file URL takes the form: file://<host>/<path> where <host> is the fully qualified domain name of the system on which the <path> is accessible... As a special case, <host> can be the string "localhost" or the empty string; this is interpreted as 'the machine from which the URL is being interpreted'.
