¿Por qué elegir Ghost?
Privacy, security and speed are some of the most common reasons for why large companies and publications favour Ghost for their publishing needs.
We've found that most modern teams setting up new publications get given the same brief: Use an open platform which is stable, make sure it's fast + SEO friendly, and for the love of god make sure it's not PHP. Ghost has quickly become the most popular platform to check all those boxes.
Enjoy a standard of technology which you normally only get building in-house: A Node.js core + a full JSON API with a permissive MIT License, all of which have received extensive independent security audits and penetration testing.
Ghost's advantages attracted DuckDuckGo to use the platform for their in-house publication: SpreadPrivacy.com
Pero ¿qué hay de Medium?
Medium es una gran red social usada para promocionarse, mientras que Ghost te permite construir tu propia plataforma y tu propia audiencia.
When you're building a publication you should always use social networks like Twitter, Facebook and Medium to promote your content & find new readers. But once you've got those readers: What next? Social networks give you zero control over your audience, and if they decide to change algorithms or disappear, then so does your readership.
You can loosely think of it like this: Social networks are like running ads or guest spot in somebody else's magazine. By contrast, using Ghost is like creating your own magazine and owning the full, custom experience from cover to cover.
Multiple people on Elon Musk's OpenAI team publish on Medium, but the organisation has smartly built out its core publication on top of Ghost.
¿Cuál es la mejor forma de ejecutar Ghost?
Ghost se puede ejecutar en nuestro hosting gestionado totalmente por nosotros, o integrado directamente en tu propia infraestructura dependiendo de lo que prefieras.
The majority of people tend to run Ghost on our fully managed PaaS called Ghost(Pro). This removes the headaches of server management, security monitoring and software updates completely — and allows you to focus on the other aspects of your business where time is better spent.
Some larger organisations such as Apple and Square choose to run Ghost on their own private networks where they're able to make some deep core modifications to the software in order suit specific use cases.
For these types of companies we're always pleased to offer Enterprise Support contracts to ensure that their software is always secure, up to date, and running optimally.
¿Puedo modificarlo según mis necesidades?
Ghost tiene una interfaz de administración muy simple para obtener una experiencia de usuario sin complicaciones, pero siempre puedes mirar bajó el capó y tener el control total sobre su funcionamiento.
Things like automatic XML sitemaps, RSS feeds and dedicated SEO & Structure Data meta fields mean that there's a lot which Ghost just does for you, right out of the proverbial box. But it can also be adapted to suit a huge number of use cases.
Front end modifications for things like analytics, styling and scripts are easily done at a theme level. You can plug in multiple database via an ORM layer, while your file system can live almost anywhere using a custom storage adapter. Even integrating a full search index using something like Algolia is possible with a few tweaks.

¿Qué pasa con el diseño?
Puedes crear un diseño personalizado desde cero, elegir una plantilla predefinida o modificar nuestro tema predeterminado para que se adapte a tu estilo y marca.

A fast-track to getting a new publication online is to use the Ghost default theme as a base and modify it to suit your brand. This allows you to get up and running with minimal fuss, benefitting from hundreds of hours of development already done for you.
