That is one big discount there...

Thanks for kind words, and good luck with this promo!

Not sure if I asked this before, but what does it take to stream audio online? In terms of software and hardware? For example, do clients need a special application to manage playlists, files, or does it come in a package from a company providing the service?

Yes this is a big Discount - in reality we just set up a second shoutcast server and we just want to start to get customers on it as fast as possible in order to increase our Return on Investment.

We are not a budget hosting and we never really over populate our servers so

So to answer Artashes other question

there is an option for AutoDJ feature ith the control panel. The Control panel is cPanel / whmSONIC - so it is an add on to cpanel. EASY TO USE!

once you upload the music files you can then broadcast that out and anyone with an winamp, itunes, windows media player etc can capture the ip address and let the music or sounds play.

Also, it is possible to have the system pick up the music directly from your laptop, computer or anther server somewhere else and then use the web server to stream it to the masses.

here is a sample of how the control panel looks appears.

Now, this is not only for music - if for example hostingdiscussion wanted to do a weekly 1 hour talk show from your office - we would help you set up the shoutcast hosting then at your office you would be set up to talk show, etc and then through your computer it would hit our server and broadcast out through the site port

here are is a more detailed description and I hope I didn't confuse anyone

What is SHOUTcast?

SHOUTcast is a free-of-charge audio homesteading solution. It permits anyone on the internet to broadcast audio from their PC to listeners across the Internet or any other IP-based network (Office LANs, college campuses, etc.).

SHOUTcast's underlying technology for audio delivery is MPEG Layer 3, also known as MP3 technology. The SHOUTcast system can deliver audio in a live situation, or can deliver audio on-demand for archived broadcasts.


How SHOUTcast works...

The SHOUTcast audio homesteading system is comprised of three simple components. They are explained in detail below:

LISTENING
Listeners tune in to SHOUTcast broadcasts by using a player compatible with streaming MP3 audio. Users can visit the SHOUTcast directory to locate a stream they'd like to listen to. Recommended players are listed below:
Windows users should use Winamp.
Mac users should use iTunes.
Linux/X Windows users should use XMMS.

BROADCASTING
Persons wanting to broadcast will need to run their own server, as per the instructions below, or find someone willing to run one for them. Once a server's located, broadcasters use Winamp and a plug-in called the SHOUTcast Source for Winamp Plug-In to send audio from Winamp to the SHOUTcast server. The tools are available here, and there's an entire section of the documentation dedicated to the plug-in.

RUNNING A SERVER
The magic of the SHOUTcast system happens inside the SHOUTcast Distributed Network Audio Server (DNAS). This software runs on a server attached to an IP network with lots of bandwidth, and is responsible for receiving audio from a broadcaster, updating the SHOUTcast directory with information about what the broadcaster is sending, and sending the broadcast out to listeners. More information is in the server section of the documentation.
