With API, pulling ID from a given DNS name

So, this seems pretty basic, but I've been unable to find a way to do this.  We have automation in place to perform validations and purging for our environment after assets have gone stale, but we also need to perform adhoc purging, say if an IT team resolves a vuln by retiring the server associated.  

We have a script to perform that task, but it only works by IP, and of course, that's the least memorable aspect of an asset, as humans are far better at remembering a servername than they are an IP address.  I'm trying to modify my script to work on a DNS basis at the request of team-mates, but I'm coming up with bupkiss.  There seems to be no way in the Host List Detection API to give it a DNS name and pull back an ID.  Am I missing something, or is this a FR?
