Hardcoded Database IP in ASP

Hello fellow Security Guru's.

I've been on the distro from sometime and gaining a lot of insight into various security issues.

Question: I have ASP script that points to a backend database residing on seperate physical server. Is there any known way of getting around using a hard-coded IP address to point to the database? Would utilizing the OS hosts file serve my purposes of and satisfy secure code practices? Thanks guys.

Darryl
