Internet radio stations perform a substantial amount of data transfer and require a dedicated, always-on Internet connection, so it is typically not practical to host a station from a home computer on a broadband or dial-up Internet connection.


Accordingly, the first step in setting up an Internet radio station is obtaining a hosting account from a stream hosting provider. Your stream hosting account will typically include everything you need to begin broadcasting -- Internet connectivity, disk space to store your broadcast media, and web-based access to the Centova Cast stream hosting control panel.


The rest of the steps in this guide assume you have already purchased a stream hosting account and have received your login information for Centova Cast.
