Note that the changes won't take effect until the system rereads /etc/rc.conf. You can do this by shutting down to single user mode then exiting it. In other words (after saving everything that you need saving) as root
The system will gradually shut to single user mode and you'll then be told to hit enter for the default shell, sh
The system will exit single user mode and go back to normal. At that point your hostname should be changed. You can check this by simply typing at a command prompt
