The OnlineResource in services.wms.md is something different than the OnlineResource of the DCPs. The former is just a pointer to a homepage of the service provider, for example.

It uses the Host header. You need to set this header, if you are running MapProxy behind a reverse proxy. You can also set the X-Forwarded-Host header. See http://mapproxy.org/docs/nightly/deployment.html#http-proxy
