We could (and should) set up both and to point to the same IP address. As Arthur
points out, they can be any server at any ISP.

I'll also point out that there's a Wiki module for Drupal that does what we
need. Since we have a Drupal instance running on already,
with donated hosting, that's easy for us to do in terms of logistics.

I've created a poll at
that perhaps we could use for people to vote between the three options.
There's also a discussion forum there, so we can discuss the issue without
consuming the OVC project mailing list. :-)

work even if's ISP isn't hosting the service
