    Exclamation Shoutcast Hosting Wanted!

    Hello,

    I am after Shoutcast hosting for my online radio I am starting. Basically I would like unlimited bandwidth, 500 listeners, 80kbps stream. I have a budget of $15AUD per month I would like to pay.

    I would like you to tell me about any suggestions you have.

    Thanks.

    Good luck, you're not going to find that for anywhere near what you're wanting to pay.

    Wow, He wants a lot for a little, Good Luck though, If you are just starting out I dont know if 500 people are going to listen to your station. Maybe start out small and build up.

    Try adding a zero onto your budget or decreasing your requirements.

    Very hard to find what you want, id say impossible since unlimited bandwidth is not possible.

    I'd say a decent ShoutCast hosting server like that will probably cost you at least $200 per month from what I see on the market.

    Who does shoutcast anymore? It is time to switch to Windows or Flash based streaming. You may be able to find some shared streaming services in that price range (not exactly for $13, but at least not 10 times more).

    I guess you are from AU , if you expect even near decent sound/radio quality you should look for a local provider, and honestly, bump up your budget - try getting at least 10Mbps un-metered traffic server in AU.

    good luck!

    Getting a local unmetered server is probably your best/only bet but there is no way you will find one in your budget unfortunately.

    I'm regular on the dp forums and I have to admit that is not rare to meet such offers there. Perhaps you have possibility to leave your request there as well and get few deals to look through
    Good luck

    Which is exactly why you should avoid DP... Impossible offers by providers that are just begging to fail and that's if you're lucky to find one that's not simply a scammer...

    Depending on what kind of clarity you want price will very. But if you want good quality sound expect around $300USD give or take. Bandwidth is not cheap. But you might be able to get something decent for $150USD what ever that equal in your money.
