How to share admin responsibility for a neighbourhood's online forum

For several years I've run an online forum for my neighbourhood and I'd like to make sure I'm not the only person who has the virtual keys to the website, in case I go under the proverbial bus. But I'm not sure how best to manage this.

This isn't solely so that someone else can fix/move/update the site should I die, but also so that it's possible for me to easily step away from running the site and let someone else have a turn.

Currently, the domain name is registered in an account with several of my other domain names. And the site is hosted on a hosting service where I have some of my other own sites.

At a minimum, I plan to move both the site's domain name and web hosting to a single service, with no other names or sites involved. I could then share the login details with a trusted co-admin (who already exists).

However, this account would still be registered to my personal email address. So I thought about using a dedicated gmail address and sharing details of that with the other admin... but gmail accounts appear to require a cellphone number to be attached which would still leave a single point of responsibility with me.

Am I over-thinking this? Have you set up something like this for a group? Any thoughts on how best to manage it?
