    I'd suggest mostly any VPS, that fits on the memory and CPU resource requirements, and have a good link speed. 100mb/s+

    I doubt ull find any thing free to do this.. However Id recommend getting a VPS with a decent amount of memory and bandwidth then install centova cast.

    Like what most people have said, find yourself a good VPS Provider, that can offer a decent spec VPS for a good price. Depending on your estimated listeners, you may need a good amount of bandwidth.

    Good luck,

    finding a vps is not a problem. For now, I just want to start a radio station on test basis therefore looking for a cheap solution.
    centova cast is not in my budget
    Is there any other cheap possible free shoutcasting solution? Considering that I already have a Linux vps to use.

    Awaiting for professional suggestions from wht friends

    Try VPS.net -- they offer pre-installed packages including Shoutcast, they are a little high but quality is great, automatic backups, instant installations and you can pay by the day -- as little as $1 to get started.
    Install the new sc_trans(free), which has a nice web based auto dj cpanel.

    sc_trans d/l
    shoutcast.com/download
    choose the SHOUTcast Transcoder (SC_TRANS 2 - Beta Drop 40 )

    vps.net

    Buy a server make sure it has centos. Then go to shoutcast.com download the shoutcast DNAS, Install it.

    After configuration of DNAS, go back to shoutcast.com then download SC Transcoder/SC_Trans.

    Now create a folder, then upload all of your songs onto that. then configure SC_Trans to play the files on the folder and to stream on your SC server.

    Now you got your own Radio and its free. No need to buy any software.
