    Looking for Managed VPS for Icecast

    I am doing a website for a real fm radio station located in the Philippines. I want to be able to rebroadcast an over-the-air station and have a link to the stream and playlist on the website like most other radio stations do.

    I just read on the winamp website they are discontinuing it after 15 years and all associated services which probably means shoutcast too.

    I am still learning how to set this type of site up since it's my first time with streaming. I would assume there will be few concurrent users (25 tops) on the website and also I do not need any control panel.

    So if somebody knows a reliable VPS provider for streaming, who can possibly provide a little support to setup the streaming that would be great. I want the location of the VPS to be in the United States though. Thanks again for any suggestions on these type of providers that you have used before.

    Thanks again.

    PS. Maybe like 10.00 per month price range

    I dont think you are going to get a manage Icecast server for anywhere near $10 a month, let alone a VPS.

    I could go with unmanaged then and just install icecast myself if need be. So if anybody else has some experience with a VPS provider with a good network please reply with a name. Thanks

    It'd be cheaper to just pay monthly for a shoutcast hosting account. Choosing a provider which includes Centovacast will allow you to easily manage the stream.

    No problem. I used to use TidyHosts many years ago and they were ok, but I'm not sure what they're like now.

    You can find a lot of providers offering shoutcast hosting in the following forum: Advertising Forums : Web Hosting Offers : Other Hosting Offers
