When I run the project on gitpod, it opens something like

Hi Salem,
at the moment we do not have support for custom subdomains. However, in many cases all you need for your code to work is a correct Host header. That’s something that a reverse proxy can do for you. Maybe something like tinyproxy, using Go’s built-in reverse proxy, or might do the trick.

Coming to think of it, this kind of feature might make sense in gp forward-port as well.


This is something we need as well.

In localhost, we have something like,, and others

@kevinhq Have you tried to use the local companion: Gitpod Local Companion - localhost is going remote In such case your app will be available on localhost as usual and you can have subdomain on localhost.


This is really awesome. Nice work!
