how do you ban hostnames via iptables? Ips are something else but hostnames, not sure how.
You can give domain name instead of ip , but it will be resolved when you add it (so it's exactly the same as adding the address it points to). the command is:
iptables -I INPUT -s domain name -j DROP
But if a single IP is shared by more than host then it is not possible with iptables.
Alternative for this is :
You can block any hostname with a deny from in .htaccess or the virtualhost directive if you wish.
