How Can a Lifetime Offer for Ghost CMS Hosting Be Sustainable?

Last updated: 08 December 2023

Magic Pages offers a monthly, a yearly, and a lifetime plan for our Ghost CMS hosting. We are often asked how our lifetime offer can be sustainable, so let's dive into it:

  1. Partnership with Server Providers: Magic Pages uses a server provider that offers lifetime deals on second-hand servers. The hardware is still incredibly powerful, especially for a content management system like Ghost. We extend the savings we have to our customers and also see the usage of second-hand server as a contribution to sustainability and greener web technologies​​.
  2. Cost-Efficient Operations: We have been eliminating overhead where possible – a small team, no extravagant office space, and no investor obligations​​. Most third-party tools we use (for customer service, deploying our infrastructure, etc.) are hosted on our own infrastructure without additional cost.
  3. Limited Email Usage: All our plans include sending 10,000 email newsletters every month. Additional emails cost $5.00 per 10,000 emails. This limitation is enough for most smaller publications, and also ensures that high email usage is fully sustainable.
  4. Supported by Custom Developments: Magic Pages also offers custom theme and website developments with Ghost CMS. The revenue we generate from these projects support the small recurring running costs of our Ghost CMS hosting service.
The "lifetime" in our offer refers to the product's lifetime. As long as Magic Pages operates, the service will be available without forcing upgrades or plan changes, unless needed for expanded features like higher email sending limits​​.
