The mailing lists hosted at lists.FreeBSD.org are managed by our
postmaster team. So you have to go through the "normal process"
before you create a mailing list there. This means that:
a) You have to talk to postmaster and convince them that there
is a very real need for another mailing list.
b) You have to come up with a 'charter' for the mailing list: a
short blurb that describes what the list topic will be, who
is allowed to post there, etc.
c) Once you get approval from postmaster, your list will be
created and you can go on using it.
I am not sure what you mean by "serve a domain". Do you already
have a web site or other community-related place where people can
join and talk about FreeBSD-related material? If yes, what is
the name of the web site? Can you briefly describe the community
