How do I get my own domain name?
What is web hosting and why do I need it?
Imagine it like this: your web domain is digital property, but you still need to build a structure on it if you want to live there.
Web hosting is the structure, it's where the content of your website resides (on a server, somewhere). No one can see your website without web hosting.
I've got a website but it needs updating. Can Spirals fix it?
If it's Ghost, yes. Otherwise, we recommend getting away from overcomplicated and distracting platforms like Wordpress or Squarespace.
All most creators really need for building their creative platform is a blog, newsletter, and membership platform. Full stop.
Your products can exist elsewhere, on commercial platforms designed for your specific needs (downloads, books, courses, communities, etc).
We're proud to use Ghost with our clients because it is open-source.
How many email addresses can I have in my newsletters?
As many as you want!
Can I have multiple newsletters?
Why would I need a subscription platform?
Ever heard of Substack?
Well, Substack also uses Ghost, however you're not in control of how it operates, and the Substack website gets all the attention.
When you channel your audience to your own platform, you have more control over what they see and how they interact with your offerings.
