Currently, the hosting appears to be non-Canonical, lending some credibility to the notion that lubuntu.me may not be the official site (at least in light of lubuntu.net). Also, it would be super nice if we didn't have to worry about sysadmin stuff, especially with that security nightmare known as WordPress.
When the website hosting was no longer possible through phillw, we needed a new home and quickly. marcoceppi was kind enough to offer us a space and that's where we've been ever since. Since then, the ownership of the domain has been taken by Canonical and hosting is the last step.
At time of writing, RT#28510 (and 29820, which should be merged) is tracking this need.
