WordPress Host Headers


This simple plugin that adds a “Host-Header” HTTP header where you can define your webhost. Web partners that scan for compromised websites can notify hosts more effectively to cleanup sites.

This plugin is super overkill. Adding a simple file with the following to your mu-plugins.php will have the same effect.

// custom-host-header.php
add_filter( 'wp_headers', function( $headers ) {
    $headers['Host-Header'] = 'YOUR HOST NAME HERE';
    return $headers;
} );


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload /host-header/ plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Or, search for the plugin in the plugin repo.
  4. There is no step 4.
