Hello folks. I’m considering trying out self-hosting Ghost, but my main concern is the security and maintenance tasks involved. My knowledge of scripting is ZERO so what I want to know is, how important is it to install every single Ghost update, really? From what I read, I understand that Ghost is fairly secure, so are updates mainly really about performance improvements, or are they critical from a securite standpoint as well?
As a non-developer, how much time should I expect to spend on technical things like updates and maintenance, every month? (I’m looking to use Ghost for a news site with about 100 or so posts per month)
And lastly, if anybody has any hosting recommendations other than Digital Ocean, I would love to hear them. Thanks!
