Hosting Providers That Are Optimized For Podcasts
I wouldn’t recommend anyone else other than Libsyn to meet your hosting needs for your podcast. So you may be asking, why would you need a separate hosting provider for your podcast?
Simple. Most shared hosting providers were not set up to handle delivering your audio streams. It’s not that they’re not capable of the storage aspect of it, it has to do when you show becomes popular and the amount of downloads that may take place.
Hosting providers generally have you set on a bandwidth limit, the more downloads you have and especially if you have a high subscriber rate will greatly affect how much of your bandwidth is utilized during the download process.
While we’re discussing hosting providers, let’s bring into play an amazing plugin you can utilize once you start podcasting using WordPress.
Blubrry is an amazing plugin which offers an vast array of features and capabilities. Many of these are amazing if you are going to be delivering your content to other streaming provider such as iTunes, Google Play, and TuneIn radio. Merely set up your podcast, set your RSS Feed and you are in business.
Then all you have to do is submit your RSS Feed to whatever you choose to have your podcast available upon.
