SHOUTcast hosting at a glance
You can begin streaming immediately after you order an account. When you make your stream public, it will automatically be listed in the SHOUTcast directory at SHOUTcast.com. Your stream name, song name, artist or genre will be visible to millions of visitors. You can also embed the stream on your website or you can give the link to your station directly to your listeners.
Server Room provides complete solutions for both beginner and professional radio station owners. You can also link your SHOUTcast hosting account with one of our Auto DJ plans. Auto DJ is a program that allows you keep your station broadcasting even if your computer is not on.

A: Yes, we will provide you with the embed code for your website.
Q: How will I be able to listen to my stream if I don't have a website?
A: With Server Room you have access to 'custom pages'. You will have your own page within our website where your listeners will be able to hear your radio station.
Q: Can my listeners make requests for the songs that are playing on my radio station?
A: Yes, your listeners can request songs by accessing your 'custom page'
Q: I have a 24/7 streaming radio station hosted at Server Room. Can I get a white label application built for free?
A: No, only applications with the Server Room logo are free. We can also build a white label application for you but additional costs will incur ($299 for one device, $399 for two devices or $499 for three devices. You can get more information about mobile application costs by contacting our Technical Support team).
Q: Do you offer Port 80 feature?
A: Yes, each port will cost you an additional $2.99 per month.
Q: What does traffic measure?
A: Traffic represents the amount of data your listeners download from us when they stay connected to your station(s). Every listener will consume an amount of traffic that is equal to your bitrate, every second they listen. For example if you stream at 128 kbps ( kilobits per second ) and you have 20 listeners that stay connected one hour, this would be the consumption formula: 20 ( listeners ) * 128 ( kilobits ) * 60 ( seconds ) * 60 (minutes ) / 8 ( to transform it from kilobits in kilobytes ) / 1024 ( to transform it from kilobytes in megabytes ) / 1024 ( to transform it from megabytes in gigabytes )
~= 1.10 GB/hour. So, the traffic consumption depends on the number of listeners you have, how long they stay connected to your station(s) for and the bitrate you stream at. When you almost reach your traffic limit you will receive an e-mail. If you reach that limit the account will be deactivated until you buy extra bandwidth, or until the new billing month begins and the traffic is reset. You can also check your traffic consumption at any time in your account page by logging in on our website.
Bonus 1: Promote our company on your site and you will receive up to 50% extra traffic! Grab a banner, pin it to your site and keep it there! The traffic is available for a month, and it will be renewed for as long as you keep the banner! For more info, contact our technical support team.
Bonus 2: Server Room offers free Auto DJ accounts with 500 MB of storage included for SHOUTcast Bandwidth Plans with unlimited listeners.
Once the payment is completed you will receive an email with the login details for your account. Accounts are automatically activated so you will not need to wait for it to be manually activated. If this is your first time streaming online then you can follow an easy step-by-step video tutorial on our website and start your first stream online.
