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.
choose the SHOUTcast Transcoder (SC_TRANS 2 - Beta Drop 40 )
