Who's behind this?

Hi, I'm Jannis Fedoruk-Betschki, a web designer and developer from Austria.

I fell in love with Ghost back in 2018. But, I noticed a hiccup: you'd either need deep pockets to get someone to host it or you'd be diving deep into tech jargon just to set it up.

So, voilà! In early 2023, when I faced this problem again, I brought "Magic Pages" to life. Now, you can enjoy Ghost with ease, without emptying your wallet. One payment, and you're all set.

Got a question? Just drop me a line at Cheers!

Frequently asked questions

We know you've got questions, and we're here to help. Here are some of the most common questions we get asked about Magic Pages.

What is Magic Pages?

Magic Pages is a no-subscription Ghost host. We take care of the technical details, so you can focus on your content. We offer a lifetime deal for $349, which includes a lifetime license for one website and 10,000 emails per month. You can look at us us as an alternative to other Ghost hosting providers, but with the big difference that you only pay once.

Do you offer a free trial?

Yes, we offer a 14-day free trial. No credit card required. During the trial, you can test all features and see if Ghost and Magic Pages is the right fit for you. If you decide to upgrade, you can do so at any time.

Is Ghost easy to use?

Absolutely! If you can use Word or Google Docs, you can use Ghost. It's that easy. And if you get stuck anywhere, we're just one chat message away.

Do I need any tech skills to set up a Ghost site with Magic Pages?

Nope! A general understanding of how websites work doesn't hurt, but if you get stuck anywhere, we're just one chat message away.

How does Ghost compare to other website builders?

Ghost is one of the most popular open source publishing platforms. It's designed around the idea of being simple and intuitive, so you can focus on your content. If you're looking for an uncluttered publishing experience, that allows you to also build a membership business, Ghost is the way to go.

Can I export my content from Ghost and Magic Pages?

Absolutely! All pages, posts, and your subscribers can be exported with a few clicks. No lock-in.

What kind of customer support does Magic Pages offer?

We offer chat support through our customer portal. Most of the time, you'll get a response quickly. Due to time zone differences, there might be a delay of a few hours sometimes. But rest assured, we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

What happens if I exceed my email limit?

No worries! If you exceed the 10,000 emails per month limit, we will contact you. If the spike is temporary, we won't charge you for the extra emails. If you expect to send more than 10,000 emails per month on a regular basis, we can offer you a custom plan. Generally speaking, if you exceed the 10,000 emails per month, we will charge $10 per 10,000 emails. This is a lot cheaper than most email marketing providers.

How can a lifetime plan like this be sustainable?

The big advantage of running a small operation is that we don't have a lot of overhead. We don't have a big team, we don't have a fancy office, we don't have investors that we need to pay back.

But the key to offering our lifetime plan is the fact that we have found an infrastructure provider that offers us a great deal on second-hand servers. These servers are still very powerful, but they are no longer the latest and greatest. But hey, Ghost doesn't need a lot of resources anyway.

We make sure that these servers aren't overcrowded, so your website is always fast and reliable. Even though you're only paying once. Promise :)

Can't I just use Ghost directly? Why should I use Magic Pages instead?

Yes! The great thing about open source software is that you can use it however you want. Anybody can download Ghost and install it on a server. But that's where the fun starts. You need to manage your own server, install updates, and make sure everything is bulletproof.

Magic Pages takes care of all that for you. We make sure your website is always online, fast, and secure. We install updates for you, and we make sure your website is backed up regularly. We also offer a bunch of pre-built templates that you can use to get started quickly.

In its essence, Magic Pages is "Ghost-as-a-service" – but with a lifetime license.

What is a lifetime license?

Let's not beat around the bush. Lifetime deals are often misunderstood. The "lifetime" in lifetime deal refers to the lifetime of the product. Simple as that.

For as long as Magic Pages exists, you will be able to use it. We will never force you to upgrade to a different plan or subscription – unless you want to (e.g. you need to send more than 10,000 emails per month).

Together with our infrastructure provider, we have no plans to shut down Magic Pages anytime soon. We're in this for the long run – so you can enjoy your lifetime deal for a long time to come.

Can I use my own custom domain with Magic Pages?

Yes! You can simply connect it in our admin panel. Or just use a free subdomain.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept credit cards, PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Alipay, WeChat Pay, Link, Afterpay/Clearpay, and bank debits (e.g. ACH, SEPA).

How long does it take to set up a website with Magic Pages?

We've actually timed it. On average, it takes 46 seconds to deploy a website with Magic Pages. All you need to do for that, is tell us the domain you want to use through a simple setup wizard. We'll take care of the rest.

How many websites can I create with Magic Pages?

As many as you like! One license for $349 gets you lifetime access for one specific website. If you want three websites, simply buy three licenses.

Does Ghost offer any integrations with other tools?

Yes, every Ghost website comes with a Zapier integration. You can connect any tools that work with Zapier to your website.

If you're more tech savvy, every Ghost website also provides a JSON API and webhooks.

You can also paste HTML snippets into your pages and posts to customize them further.

Are there any hidden fees or charges associated with using Magic Pages?

None at all. We believe in transparency, so what you see is what you get.
