There are several options on how to stream your local radio show online. One of them is to install a radio server in your local computer, like SHOUTcast or IceCast. The other one, to avoid the hassle, is to just rent from a streaming provider to save time in configuring the installation of the radio servers.

Worth to mention is the disadvantages that can be pointed out in using the 2 methods could be enough reason the install the radio server via VPS instead.

Some disadvantages for installing it locally in your computer:

  • You need to have knowledge on how to use terminal (SSH) commands for Linux servers or command prompt for Windows server.
  • A possibility that it won’t become a 24/7 radio stationWhen your computer is off, your server is off.

Also, the disadvantage of renting it from a streaming provider is just all about the money.

Furthermore, having a 320 kbps audio bit rate and unlimited listeners for $50 per month seems reasonable enough. But if you compare the cost against a VPS streamed radio station, which will probably cost you less than $20 per month than renting, it is simply expensive.
