Think of it like this. Forem service will be open on port 3000. DNS providers don't accept random ports(most of them only prefer 80 and 443, which is plain IP).

So, any service that port forward the service port 3000 to 80 is fine.

I have set up a ProxyPass on 127.0.0.1:3000/, and the website runs successfully, but when I close the terminal window, the website also stops.
Is there a way forem to still run even when I close the terminal window

Use tmux

Overmind has handled tmux for you by running as a daemon, here's the command line to launch the application instead of using bin/startup:
overmind s -D -f Procfile.dev
