yes, hostnames can also be used.

You can use the hostname, but you have to ensure that it can be resolved.
Thanks Nicklas and Wolf-Dieter.
When I use hostname instead of the IP, the Wildfly service won't shut down. The below error shows:

Is there anything else that needs to be set before using the hostname in place of an IP?
