Host­ing and RSS Feeds

HWM (Malaysia) - - SUBSCRIBE -

Up till this point, start­ing your own podcast will cost noth­ing and it can con­tinue to be so. There are free host­ing ser­vices avail­able, such as Pod­bean which of­fer 50MB of stor­age space, good enough for 54 min­utes of au­dio in 128kbps MP3 for­mat.

Once your me­dia has been uploaded, you can use blog­ging ser­vices such as Word­Press to pub­lish your ma­te­rial. Word­Press specif­i­cally has a pod­cast­ing cat­e­gory for posts and will also in­clude the posts as part of your RSS feed.

How­ever if you want to at­tempt pod­cast­ing for the long term, we rec­om­mend a pro­fes­sional host­ing ser­vice and RSS provider. One of the best around is Lib­syn, which will host your con­tent, cre­ate an RSS feed for it and push it on to podcast ag­gre­ga­tors such as iTunes. The ser­vice even has the ca­pa­bil­ity to get your podcast out on the smart­phone mar­ket via an app as well.

A num­ber of fea­tures and op­tions are avail­able to Lib­syn users.

Lib­syn is one of the pre­mier podcast host­ing ser­vices avail­able for cus­tomers will­ing to pay.
