Ghost is one of the newer blogging platforms on the market. If you’ve not yet heard of Ghost, it’s intended to be a modern re-imagination of blog software with a focus purely on blogging. Unlike WordPress, it’s built entirely in modern web technologies and doesn’t suffer the same issue of bloat from trying to be too many things.
Setting up Ghost has previously been a bit of challenge, because it needed Node.js to be installed on the server and required a proficiency with SSH to install. This excluded most low-cost shared web hosting and casual users from being able to use it. Addressing this problem, Ghosts developers began offering a hosting service starting at $19.00 per month – a price that’s unaffordable for most casual bloggers.
Thanks to Softaculous, you can now install Ghost on any plan here at Gowland Media for no additional cost. Just go to your cPanel dashboard, select Softaculous App Installer from the menu and follow the steps to create a Ghost blog. You don’t need to know how to use SSH, much around with databases or even know what Node.js is! Best of all, Softaculous will take care of all upgrades so you can just focus on blogging.
