See the FAQs at <http://wiki.list.org/x/mIA9> and
<http://wiki.list.org/x/lYA9> and perhaps others.

When creating a list from the web, the host name is the host in the URL
you used to access the create page.

When creating a list with bin/newlist, the default host name is
DEFAULT_URL_HOST, but there are options to specify another host. See
bin/newlist --help.
