# Remove "Powered by Ghost" on a Ghost blog

I am grateful that Ghost is open-source and also provided so many tools for free, such as the Docker image on DigitalOcean. Some thanks should also go to DigitalOcean for the tooling.

Still, I'd rather have a website that does not say "Powered by Ghost" in the footer. So I went over to my VM and opened /var/www/ghost/content/themes/casper/default.hbs. At the bottom of the file it contained:

{{!-- The global footer at the very bottom of the screen --}}
<footer class="site-footer outer">
<div class="inner">
<section class="copyright"><a href="{{@site.url}}">{{@site.title}}</a> &copy; {{date format="YYYY"}}</section>
<nav class="site-footer-nav">
</footer>
