I would not use the deprecated "name" attribute, since it is a catch all 
attribute for IPs and host names.

The new "hostname" attribute is much better, since it only checks the 
hosts name.
There is now a separate attribute for checking only against IPs which is 
the "ip" attribute.

Another thing is that the host name is not formated like a regular 
expression, so you need to escape the hyphen (-) with a backslash (\) => 
"\-", else it would be interpreted as a range from "a" to "8".
