Why not? It would be good if someone could outline the issues. Here is something that may be relevant:
[quote]the ability to host Ghost on a shared host is dependent on the hosting provider. Ghost is developed on a fairly new platform (node.js) that many “traditional” hosts haven’t yet adopted.
Node.js was released in 2009; PHP (which Wordpress is based) was released in 1995. So it might take a while for the providers to offer it. I would recommend emailing your hosting provider and let them know you want node.js[/quote]
Just as a comment: it feels as though Dreamhost has become less proactive, less agile, less technically on-top-of-things, than it was a few years ago. Not sure if that’s true and would welcome other customers’ opinions.
