View Full Version : VPS server for radio station, what is required?
February 28th, 2007, 07:50
Can you give me some advice in what I should choose?
I need to have a server for my radio station set up; it should have the abillity to stream 24/7 by 128 kbps or 96 kbps or something good quality,and I need a plan that allows me to have like 100 or more listeners at same time. Also it should be affordable. Do you know which plan of srv1hosting.com fits my needs? or any other affordable server hoster?
Also, I need to have an autodj software installed on the server. Anyone can tell me which Autodj and stream software I need to use for the server and any affordable ones?

a VPS server can't provide you the bandwidth you need for 24/7 streaming

I wrote in here, that somebody was adviced to do that, but what can you then advice me to do?

you can purshase the service from a dedicated shoutcast provider, or you can buy a low end dedicated server with good bandwidth. When you're on a VPS, you mostly get 1 mbps average, which is enough for about 5 128 kbps slots

He is right. You will not be able to do it on a VPS. Plus with a VPS you will have to worry about installing everything and getting it all up and running.
I would recomend you find a ShoutCast provider.
When you are ready to find one shoot me an email We might be able to help you

Where are your shoutcast servers Seth? I was having a look on your site but can't seem to find them.

In a way a pure shoutcast provider would be cheaper and better...
however if you insist on a lot more control on the system as a whole, then I suggest getting a lower end server with more bandwidth. If it's only one station, a P3 should suffice for now

A VPS would be suffice if your shoutcast is not full at all times. But, if it comes to 100 at the same time, I would suggest a medium end dedicated server with a 100mbps port.
