The host name value is very handy if you have several servers and want to use the same domain for all of them.

You can reach them by giving each server a unique host name.
e.g. "alpha" for the first server and "beta" for the second

the domain value can be any domain you own
e.g. myhosting.tld

My DNS has two A entries for getting to ISPConfig control panel
e.g.
alpha.myhosting.tld A 119.68.xxx.xxx
beta.myhosting.tld A 88.43.xxx.xxx

Of course you can also reach the control panel by using the IP as the name.
