This is a backport of 7c3a47ed8965c3a3eb90a9a4678d5caedbba6337

From the commit to master:
As of Django 1.8.16, Django is rejecting any HTTP_HOST header that is
not on the ALLOWED_HOST list.  We often need to reference the toaster
server via a fqdn, if we start it via webport= for instance,
and are hitting the server from a laptop. This change does reduce  the
protection from a DNS rebinding attack, however, if you are running the
toaster server outside a protected network, you should be using the
production instance.
