I would suggest using a static site generator:

You can work in whatever format you prefer, as long as there is a
plugin for it (markdown is usually the default).

You can host it in many places since it is just static HTML that you
build on your computer and upload to the server.

You can easily move off whatever host you use since there is a git
repo on your computer.

The two that I would recommend:

ikiwiki: I use it and many other Debian folks do to. The canonical
site for paid ikiwiki hosting is Branchable, it is by the author of


Jekyll: The canonical site for Jekyll hosting is github pages, this is
gratis for public repositories.
