When making a NAT rule for Virtual Server your able to select for source IP a FQDN which would allow a dynamic connection by given FQDN to IP to match the NAT rule.

WILDCARD FQDN are not selectable.

    NAT <> Virtual Host.
    NAT chews only IPs, no hostnames.

    You don't get how a FQDN works like say pingbox1.thinkbroadband.com as a FQDN the USG does a lookup for the IP

    You're probably right.
    I'll gladly read the lecture, if you will write it when you'll have enough time. :)
