"forge" and "forges" are in _episodes/13-hosting.md

Googling for the meaning gives me multiple options of which I don't know which to choose, which is why I was not able to make a pull request

@steltenpower, Thanks for pointing this out. I don't use the term forge when referring to hosting options, (other than within the name SourceForge). Here is a wiki entry regarding this context of forge.

It’s used here:

Projects can be hosted on university servers, on personal domains, or on public forges.

And here:

Find out whether you are allowed to host your work openly on a public forge.

How about server in both places?

I think using the term "server" might bring pushback from folks who are precise, since usually hosting services are supported by multiple servers. Perhaps "hosting service" instead of forge, keep forge but link to the wiki page, or both?
