SHOUTcast Server Hosting

What is SHOUTcast ??

SHOUTcast radio is a streaming audio solution which permits anyone to broadcast audio to listeners across the internet. You basically become your own radio station, but instead of broadcasting through radio waves, you broadcast through the internet. Your listeners can tune in through any supported media player, such as Windows Media Player, Winamp, iTunes, RealPlayer, etc. You can also get a free flash player for your web site here. SHOUTcast is software that is designed and owned by AOL . SHOUTcast.com or AOL doesn't offer shoutcast hosting directly and that is where we come in.

 

Why use SHOUTcast ??

The main reason why people choose SHOUTcast is because you get listed on SHOUTcast.com . Once you start streaming, either live or with auto dj, you will get listed on shoutcast.com within 30 minutes. Once listed on shoutcast.com listeners will be able to find your station and tune in. Listeners can search by your stream name or the title of the track your currently playing. They can also find you by the genre your streaming under. The more listeners you have the higher in the rankings you will go.

Why can't I just host SHOUTcast on my own internet connection, why do I need you ??

Good luck :) Here are some of the choices you have if you want to host your own shoutcast radio station from your house or business. Depending where you live most cable ISP only allow 2 mbps upload for $100 a month, (Max listeners is only 15 tuned in @ 128 kbps). You can get up to 10 mbps upload from a cable provider for around $200 a month, (Max listeners is 78 tuned in @ 128 kbps). You can get a T-1 with1.5 mbps upload for $350 a month,(Max listeners is only 11 tuned in @ 128 kbps). A bonded T-1 with 10 mbps upload for $850 a month,(Max listeners is 78 tuned in @ 128 kbps). DSL / FIOS / U-Verse they only give you 256 kbps upload to 1mbps. If you plan on having a 128 kbps stream with 10 listeners tuned in at the same time you will need at least a 1.28 mbps upload to handle it. Does that make sense to have a T-1 for $350 a month, when we will only charge you $20 a month for a 128 kbps - 100 listener plan. With 10 mbps you can only get on 78 listeners on before it will start buffing at 128 kbps. This is where we come in, Each server we have has either a 100mbps to 1,000mbps upload. Plenty of bandwidth to handle any size shoutcast radio station. We use 9 different datacenters with 100+ dedicated servers. BassDrive.Com is one of our customers, they get over 1,000 people on at the same time at 128 kbps, that takes a 128 mbps connection (41.47 TB a month). Goto SpeedTest.Net and see what your internet connection can do. If you want that many listeners tuned in at the same time and not pay thousands of dollars a month, it is a MUST to use a company like us to provide the amount of bandwidth that is needed and to keep it cost effective. Plus any ISP you go with will offer 0% support for shoutcast products. This is something we specialize in and we have a quick answer for any shoutcast question you might have.
