As you can see I have a domain of my own. On my web based
configuration interface I can easily redirect request to
a different location. So in theory this is not a problem.
It's even very cheap. A simple so called "Web bussiness card"
which is a domain + 5 pop accounts and a 5MB web site costs
around EUR0,50 a month which is about EUR 6 per year.
