Is it possible to assign a DNS address to the FTP lock function?

While you can permanently unlock the FTP on your hosting package for an IP, unfortunately It's not possible to assign a DNS address to have permanent FTP access as the FTP server can't authenticate that against the information passed via your FTP client. 

Often using an IP works better for this in any case, and you can unlock the FTP for more than one IP at a time also.
