Yes, that would be good.

But as far as I understand github.io (which seems to be the preferred approach) 
does not allow to redirect subpaths to somewhere else. You would have to 
install some .htaccess file with a redirect rule and doing that is likely 

So my approach is to move everything to a dedicated host/webspace with more 
control than github.io.

Well, is this a benefit? At the moment everything (except the database) is 
hosted on the same machine. So it can not even break independently...

Yes, indeed.
