HostForward is a no-code solution to allow you to run a blog (or any web service) on a subdirectory (subfolder) of a website. For example - your main site runs on platform such as Webflow and you want to run a Ghost blog on your site at /blog. With HostForward this is now simple to setup.
Okay, let’s say you have a website that runs at www.example.com and is hosted with company A. Yes. You also have a blog that runs at blog.example.com and is hosted with company B. Okay. So, what’s the problem with that? Well, Google (and other search engines) treat these two domains as two separate websites. Fine. Well not really, having these as two separate sites means any content you create for your subdomain isn’t being considered when ranking your main domain. Ahh okay, so using subdomains is bad for SEO? You got it.

HostForward supports popular platforms like Ghost, Wordpress, Webflow, Wix to list a few. We hope to have a comprehensive list here soon but basically any service that allows you to run the website as a subdirectory is probably supported. Want to know if a service you use is compatible? Contact us here and we will help investigate for you.
Most customers' websites and blogs will be fine on our Personal Plan. If your site has a very large amount of traffic, uses a lot of high-resolution imagery or hosts video directly on your servers, then you may require a higher plan. You can always upgrade your plan at a later date and we will always let you know that you are over your bandwidth limit before taking action. All our plans come with unlimited page views.
You can add or remove HTTP headers from your existing site. This means you can add things like a HTTP Strict-Transport-Security response header – why is this important? Read more here. We will also be adding additional features in the future.
