You can just change it, and it will take effect immedeately.
However, there may be some server software you have running that needs
to be restarted. But there is now reason to reboot you system (there
seldom is on freebsd).
Also (even though I see you're not asking how to change the hostname)
remember to put your changes in /etc/rc.conf lest you want to have your
changes discarded when rebooting.
