Where Should I Host My Podcast?

As a podcaster, you’ll need somewhere for your podcast to “live,” which is essentially a server. A server “serves” the podcast audio file to your listeners.

There are a whole bunch of dedicated services available like Libsyn, Blubrry, Podomatic, Podbean (our favorite) and countless others.

Those are great, but in some cases, you may not even need one. If you have your own website on a personal web hosting plan, you may be able to use that to host your podcast. It’s likely that your site is running on WordPress, for which there are some great podcasting plugins available. With a few clicks, we can have the podcast up and running through your existing site, negating the need to pay more for a separate host.

Even if you don’t have a website as it is, it may be beneficial to start one (or perhaps you planned on it with the podcast) using a host like HawkHost, where you can then host everything.

Each option has its pros and cons, so we always look at your unique situation and make a recommendation based on that. East Coast Radio Creative offers full setup services to get you running on whatever platform you choose, as well as get you listed in iTunes and other directories.

Some of the things we consider are budget, the platforms you’d like to post the podcast, audience size, if you have an existing web host plan, etc.
