Hostprovider is anything that is able to produce a host.

For example, you can create a GCE hostprovider using a Google Cloud account. After you place credentials to the created GCE hostprovider, it allows you to create a host in GCE. You also can create several hosts having the same hostprovider and, consequently, the same credentials.

You can see the list of hostproviders in the Hostproviders section.
