drupal_http_request() overrides the Host header from the parsed URL host: $options['headers']['Host'] = $uri['host']

However, if the Host header is explicitly set by the caller, drupal_http_request() should honor it.

Trivial patch attached.

Note that with this patch, when setting the Host header explicitly, the caller will be responsible for also appending non-default port numbers as per the HTTP/1.1 spec.

RTBC. As mentioned, the patch is trivial, won't break anything (it's just some if checks), & it does what it says.

It seems like it would be of limited usefulness given that you already specify the URL... but if people want it, hey, why not allow it :)

Committed to 7.x - thanks!

Thanks! Sometimes the Host header and the domain name in the URI are in fact different (such as testing a new vhost). You could do this in D8 with Guzzle like this: https://github.com/guzzle/guzzle/issues/1678
