I see what you are trying to accomplish now. You want to supply a list of
fqdn's on the internet that are not accessible to hosts on the lan side. I
see what you mean now. The easiest way to do this on a mass scale is to run
your own DNS server. m0n0wall provides a dns relay service to dhcp clients,
but it is mainly designed to allow dhcpc lient hosts to reach each other by
name. It does allow you to add your own host names as well, so if you insist
on doing it within m0n0wall, this is probably the easiest way:

The config file is pure XML, so I suggest adding a few example host entries,
downloading your config file, and looking at it in a text editor. You should
be able to figure out the format pretty easily, and that will let you write
a script to alter your current hosts file into the necessary xml to
copy/paste into the config file. Then just restore your newly created config
file into your m0n0wall and you're done.
