H2Ghost - The Revamped Ghost HTTP2/S Solution

H2Ghost is a http2/https front end for Ghost Blog, either via proxy or using Ghost's rootApp directly, providing an Node.js alternative to Nginx or Apache. It is a complete replacement of ghost-https-indexjs(discontinued) and Ghost Https Nodejs Proxy(renamed to this project).

It can be used as Ghost Blog start up wrapper.


  • Single Node.js process for both H2Ghost and your Ghost instant (configurable).

  • HTTP to HTTPS redirect.

  • HTTPS primary URL redirect for site with multiple domain/sub-domain.

  • Minimum configuration.

    4 - 6 lines if installing in same box with Ghost.
