    Dedicated server.

    I'll welcome contact with anyone running (or who has run) their own dedicated server rather than using conventional stream hosting.

    Basically... 'experiences' - easy/hard to set-up, possible downsides, etcetera.

    It all depends what you are trying to do. It sounds like you do not know too much about setting one up, so I would recommend if you choose this method to pick a provider that can offer managed services. It is easy to get a server ordered and started, but not as easy to set it up properly and efficiently.

    Thanks. Good point.
    Sorry for the slow response - for some reason I'm not receiving update email.

    If you are going to run an autodj station then there's nothing to it really. You can a VPS or dedicated server from OVH.ca or OVH Europe, intall a Linux distro like Ubuntu Server, learn some Linux Basics, install MPD player for the stream source, upload your files, set up Icecast or Steamcast and off you go. If you can read and have basic computer skills then you can get the server going in a day.

    In my opinion if you are a newbie then better idea is to trust some hosting company instead set it up.
