Please take note that the gethostbyname function has been deprecated by the
introduction of the getaddrinfo function on the Windows platform!

I have not checked into your code, but what is Asio's default mechanism for
resolving hostnames - will it spawn and asynchronously use a new thread or will
it resolve the hostname synchronously in main thread?
