PURLs are the best solution that I know.  Furthermore, using partial
redirects
http://www.purl.org/docs/long_intro.html#partial 
you can even have your URIs point to private servers inside your
firewall if you want, for example before you are ready to publish your
ontology, and then move it to a public server when you're ready to
publish it.  By changing the partial redirection the URIs will not have
to be changed.
