I don't know the exact pattern of your data. For example, istag always made up of letters, or could there be numbers too? Anyway, this should get you started.

@list = qw{hostname1.domain1:abc="tag" hostname2.domain2:abc="tag"};
foreach $line ( @list )
{
      $line =~ /^(.*):(\w+)=\"(\w+)\"$/;
      $var1 = $1;
      $var2 = $2;
      $var3 = $3;

      print("var1: $var1  var2 : $var2  var3 : $var3\n");
      
      
}
