The hostname of the machine is less important since you're most likely hosting by "IP" (normal DNS lookup to IP,) where Apache can be setup with "virtual hosts" where something.someplace.com and foobar.someplace.com might both point to the same IP, use port 80, but have different DNS addresses.
In short: No, the hostname isn't that important for your purposes.
