Keep in mind that much of the internet is ruled by caching name
servers that will be quite stubborn about having to update their
records. I seriously doubt that a TTL of 1 hour will be honored by
much of anything. You're lucky if the ISP name servers bother to check
for updates more than once or twice a day.

Still, it makes sense to use the fully qualified name of the host
rather than the IP address. IP addresses change, the goal of a FQN is
to be static forever.
