I block my entire development site and just provide exclusions for certain IPs. Such as:

RewriteCond %{REMOTE_HOST}        !123\.34\.12\.123

My IP changes all the time and I have DynDNS so I thought I might be able to use something like:

RewriteCond %{REMOTE_HOST} !^somename\.dyndns\.org

That doesn't work. Any alternatives?

Unfortunately, dyndns domains won't work, since Apache uses reverse lookup to find the domain. If you are using a domain of your own, your PTR records must be correct.
