Hosting mobile site completely separately from main site

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I work for a small non-profit organization.  We've developed a mobile version of our website, but our current hosting provider said that they will not host the mobile site (only the main site).

Is it possible, in principle, for m.acme.org to point to a completely different server, based with a different hosting provider, than acme.org or www.acme.org?  If so, how would we set that up?  Is there some configuration change that has to happen with the WHOIS record?
