Setting Up Hosting For Podcasts
Before you can start a podcast, you’ll first need podcast hosting. Podcast hosting is different from regular web hosting and there’s a selection of vendors that specialize in podcast hosting. You can host the media files on a regular web host, but it’s not the smartest idea, especially if you’ve got a lot of subscribers. This is because whenever you push a new episode, it’ll result in tons of downloads. This sudden surge of bandwidth might be too much for the hosting provider, especially if it’s on a shared plan. Because of this, there’s a risk of your website being taken offline by the web host. For that reason, it’s best to go with a company that specializes in podcasting.
