@JeffPerry Like @jack, I also use a Digital Ocean droplet for one of my websites which I run with Ghost. I'm not the most well versed at managing it (but have slowly been learning to use the terminal properly, which is challenging but also i), but found some decent tutorials to walk me through it online.
If you wanted to keep using Ghost, you could also look at some of the other managed hosting options, such as Midnight, Firepress, or Gloat. They seem to offer decent options for small sites and handle the heavy lifting for you, and there's quite a few more which seem to be popping up these days. I briefly considered Digital Press until reading their terms of service, which they basically just copied from Wordpress.com, which grants them license to use your writing, photos, etc for whatever they want. I'm definitely not on board with that.
