Ghost(Pro) Setup Guide

What is Ghost(Pro)?

Ghost(Pro) is a subscription based, premium hosting platform managed by the creator's of Ghost. What sets Ghost(Pro) apart from other hosting providers is that our platform is 100% customised to run Ghost blogs. Our hosted platform also funds the Non-Profit Organisation which organises and runs the Ghost Open Source project. So, every bit of the money we make from our hosted plans, goes right back into Ghost - and ultimately improving the Ghost software, and your experience. In this way, people who use the Ghost software secure its future development.
