One-off services for Ghost: Installations, theme customisations and updates

Gloat sets up self-hosted Ghost sites, helps you tweak or personalise your theme and handles your Ghost software updates.

One-off, affordable services to get you the most out of Ghost.

Gloat install and customisation services

The same day I decided to launch a Ghost site, I got hooked up with Dan and Gloat.

Less than 24 hours later, my site was live and looked great. It shouldn't be this easy, but with Gloat it is.

More interested in a managed host?

Gloat now offers a new fully-managed hosting offering.

No limits on page views, themes or members. No fiddling with servers or email providers.

$189/year or $19/month for unlimited Ghost hosting.

I liked how Ghost looked but didn't want to deal with the headache of starting all over again with a new platform.

Gloat is perfect. Dan helps you make the switch with no headache. Highly recommended!

Hi, I'm Dan.

I am your pay-as-you-go Ghost developer.

I want to help non-developers unlock cheap Ghost hosting and offer flexibility for ongoing updates and maintenance.

I have been building on the web since the 90s. I am a full-stack developer and run many web-based projects.

Ghost is my favourite publishing platform and I firmly believe in its mission for helping writers both publish and make money from their work.

I have installed and managed over one hundred Ghost sites, and I sell my own set of Ghost themes. If you’re struggling to set up or update Ghost or need theme customisations, I can help!

—Dan Rowden

P.S.: I also run some other Ghost-related projects:

Cove (comments for Ghost blogs)
Tools for Ghost (directory of add-ons for Ghost)
Super Themes Co. (affordable modern themes for Ghost)
