Re: Hostname

In fact, autonomous system diversity in a Tor circuit is a wonderful thing, for better anonymity against pseudo-global adversaries (such as ISP's). Then, different ISP's would have to collude to short circuit a Tor tunnel. Just be careful of those Internet eXchanges, as IX level adversaries can [probabilistically] short circuit Tor's tunnels.

Is there a way for hiding the IP of host and ISP name from Tor network and TorStatus for security reasons?

That's an extremely vague question.  IP of _what_ host, and for _what_

Anyway, based on my predicted disambiguation of your question, the answer
is generally "no, Tor clients and relays cannot easily hide themselves
from the Tor network".
