    Hi capacity hosting.

    I'll welcome suggestions for decent hosts providing capacity for thousands rather than hundreds of sim listeners.

    For thousands of simultaneous listeners I'd suggest acquiring a dedicated server. Do it only if you're sure that you really need that much listeners, otherwise you'll end up wasting money on a dedi.

    Thanks.
    The dedi route seems sensible as the likely cost of around $500 monthly for a decent/genuine unmetered 1Gbps server is ok.
    My reason for asking, is to see if there's a viable and simpler option which doesn't require server config and management.

    You can order a dedi server and install Centova, or any other stream control panel - it will do most of the hard work for you: you'll get Shoutcast/Icecast and easy way to configure everything. Depends on how well you know (or ready to learn) unix. Otherwise, just find a company that offers managed dedicated servers for streaming.

    Dedicated server is the best option for you.
