Best place to start with Ghost?


I am new here and Ghost looks very promising to me, but before I will use it for a production site, I would like to know what is the best place to keep my blog powered by Ghost?

I was realy interested in to host my blog directly on this website but it requires a credit card so I am out (don’t understand why e.g. paypal is not acceptable). I also found a digitalpress service but I coudnt find any reviews about it. Is it recommended? Or should I try to host it on my own? (if yes, where?).
