SHOUTca.st has been running for little over 5 months now, and it's grown immensely. They're the only host to offer outstanding customer service alongside the mountain of features they can offer to grow your station.
They offer completely FREE mobile apps for both iOS AND Android - at no cost to all paying customers. Their plans start from just £2.00 per month, and go up to £5.00 per month for our VIP plan - so there will be a plan to suit you, and if not, they can do custom plans at prices to suit your budget.
They also have a free plan that is designed to give you a preview of what working with SHOUTca.st is really like.
Contrary to popular belief, they DO also offer Icecast servers - so these are available on request.
They also offer access to our Radio Resource Pod (RRP) which contains hundreds of files such as dry voice-overs, artist drops and power intros.
Come over and take a look - you won't regret it! www.shoutca.st

The popularity of Pandora did not increase this year 2013.
However, reports have it that internet radio is still thriving, in fact, more and more listeners are tuning in at the start of the year.
The most hyped internet radio feature in America recorded no significant increase of listenership with 1.39 billion streams for two consecutive months.
The most shocking is that its active subscribers have now gone from 67 million to 65m since December of 2012.
This however is not the first dip in Pandora’s popularity. In June last year, the connections dropped to 1.08 billion from 1.1 billion, although it bounced to 1.16 in July of 2012.
Internet radio however is doing well. It is estimated that tuners will increase to 176.5 million this year from 132.6 million last year.
This translates to having fifty four percent of Americans listening to internet or sixty seven percent of total internet users hooked.

These days it’s hard not to have a website if you’re a radio station. Facebook or social media presence isn’t enough. Because you need a website, of course you need a domain.
There are plenty of places where you can get them, and get them free.
Dot TK probably is one of the oldest. CJB.net goes way back 15 years ago. Dot co.nr is also popular although these guys are so crowded already chances are, someone has already gotten your domain of choice.
Me.cc is new. Joynic.com offers the dot VU country code. Uni.me along with other hosts of subdomain dot ORGs and dot CCs, is a candidate as well. Check out me.pn although this one is kinda more for personal use. Then there is biz.ly and biz.nf.
Of course these domains aren’t as attractive as the dot coms, dot nets and the gold-rushy dot FM, but this is the closest you can get if you don’t want to spend money.
You can be clever though in using these free domain services and choose those that are somewhere relevant to your station’s brand. For instance, 24.eu is great if your station is based somewhere in Europe. So a domain like MegaFM.24.EU could be fitting if your branding your station as “playing 24 hours of hit music in Europe”.
Now bear in mind that some of these free domains work as both domain and hosting services and some just URL masking service or forwarders like bit.ly, or go.to, this means you gotta have to find and host your website somewhere.
Webs.com gives you both hosting and free domain (or subdomain to be exact ex. CapitalFM.webs.com). But considering that they are free, you might stumble upon bandwidth problems later on as your site grows.
You might encounter issues later on with search engine visibility.
Bottomline is if you just gotta have a website yesterday, these free domains will do the job for now. There is no substitute to getting your own dot com, or if you’ve saved enough, a dot FM.
