We love Ghost - it's our favourite way to publish written content on the internet. It's beautifully designed and intuitive to write with. It's open source and independently run. Not to mention Ghost is thoughtfully architected and secure.
But we've always though Ghost should be easier to get going with. To use Ghost you had two options. First, you can self host, which requires in-depth knowledge about servers and databases. This is out of reach for many people who want to set up a simple publication or blog. Second, you can use Ghost(Pro) - which is expensive, and has lots of features you may not need.
We hope Atlas will be your third option. Managed hosting for Ghost that is secure, has all the features you need, at a lower price-point.
Atlas is launching soon in beta - if you'd like to be on the waitlist for this, you can sign up here.
