Some questions about starting up a radio station

Post by PsycoticClown »

Hey, me and a friend want to start a internet radio station and we were wondering hwo to set up a site and a station togheter. Like we were wondering if you can just get some webspace and use that to host. cause we can get 200gb space and 2000 gb bandwith a month. Or do we have to get a shoutcast server also? Also with shoutcast, is it actually streaming from somebody's computer to a server or can u upload all the music onto the server and run it that way?

It makes no difference where the website is located so you can host that anywhere. The stream is a different story. You will need a host with a decent amount of bandwidth and 200Gb is not going to cut it.

Check out the list of hosts at www.radiotoolbox.com/hosts/ for some prices
