Sort hosts by column and not in rows across multiple columns

If you sort search results by hostname and 3 columns are visible, it is sorted in rows as follows:

host1 host2 host3
host4 host5 host6
host7 host8 host9

Is it possible to change the view/sorting so its sorted in the columns itself?

host1 host4 host7
host2 host5 host8
host3 host6 host9
