So in this video we will cover a few topics:

– Setting up the three main security groups (SSH, HTTP, HTTPS);

Ghost is a free and open source blogging platform which is amazingly simple, fast, modern and good looking.
Ghost lets you publish your blog with their hosting service with just one click… and a few hundreds $$$ a year. Their price plan might not be affordable for everyone, especially if you are new to blogging and you are testing this ground to see if it is for you or not. So, it can be a little bit expensive if you are just trying to experiment.
The alternative is to figure it out yourself… and it is not easy if you don’t have advanced coding skills and IT knowledge. That’s why I have decided to make this video. To make your life much easier.
