    Hmm that doesn't seem too bad actually. Seems pretty cool... definitely a saving in a way! So what's the difference between a straight shoutcast package and a package such as wavestreaming?

    Wavestreaming is a company. They actually sell just Shoutcast, but their control panel has different features (as do most hosts).

    If you are seeing just a straight shoutcast package (not sure which company you are looking at), you may just get the server with no control. I'd look for a host with a control panel. We use a type of panel that is very customized called Centova. It allows AutoDJ (broadcast directly from our servers), reporting, etc. Shoutcaststreaming.us also uses Centova and is a very good host too!

    I used fastcast4u for my shoutcast and woohoo networks for my icecast and serverroom.us for my WMS to broadcast my radio station.

    PS: Also I have a shoutcast server hosted on myradiostream.com as a relayed/transcoded server.

    I wonder if they have app availability. I've got a smartphone app but don't really want to lose it.

    UrbanHitzRadio has been a proud user of: MyRadioStream (formerly freestreamhosting), since July 2012. I'm not ashamed to say it.
    And let me tell you, it's been VERY, VERY stable, despite the fact that it's on a lower tier of bandwidth.
    I have since dropped my premium subscription with another provider on the list that I posted, in favor of my new subscription. I still have plenty of backup choices from the list, should anything go wary.
    There realistically is no quality difference between this service and a service that charges $1.25-3.00 a slot . And I am streaming at 160 kbps.
    Now I don't use the "FREE" service, I use the "premium" service (allows your stream to have direct tune-ins and to be listed on shoutcast), which doesn't cost that much a month.

    Now many people will argue that you get what you pay for. But this isn't one of those horrid low cost services. It's run by the good man over @ MixStream. And I was a long time user of MixStream a few years back. Ticket Support is decent.
    I've only had 2 hiccups over the past 10 months, and it wasn't that serious.
    So, when you are price shopping for a provider, keep these guys in mind. You won't be disappointed.

    Urban,

    We also use the premium MyRadioStream service... They are great!

    Many people argue that "low cost" severs generally are not that great. That is completely FALSE with these servers. My stream has never gone down, support is always fast with answering, and it is very simple and easy to use. I have 1,000 slots for a very low price. It is definitely a bang for your buck kind of deal.

    I definitely prefer MyRadioStream over any other stream provider.

    I use xtremesound i have a 320Kbps account with them and i get 20GB disk space and unlimited bandwidth and listeners, i know its hard to believe but i took a chance on a whim because it said it cost $15 not alot of money from my perspective so i took a gamble and i never looked back the service was a little slow to be activated to be fair but great service non the less it has centova control panel version 3 and it uses shoutcast not sure but i think it does icecast too but i don't like it.

    i use it for live and recorded podcasts on my doctor who website and my fans love it as they just open on the site or in itunes :D.
