Features and Ease of Use
Cheap Shoutcast offers four shared hosting plans that provide you with:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- 1 GB to unlimited storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
These hosting plans are managed via the cPanel control panel that comes with the Softaculous installer for the easy installation of a plethora of popular CMS and other programs such as WordPress, Magento, Joomla, and Zen Cart.
Once your website is up-and-running, you can promote it using Attract SEO tools and back it up with R1Soft. Backups are automatic, and you can restore your backups with one-click from the control panel.
Page loading performance is improved thanks to the Cloudflare CDN that caches content close to your customers and helps protect you against some kinds of cyberattacks.
If your needs exceed the capabilities of shared hosting, we offer a dedicated server plan that includes DDoS protection and RAID 1 mirroring to safeguard against disk data disasters. Our dedicated servers support various Linux distributions, including openSUSE, CentOS, Ubuntu, and Debian.
Pricing and Support
Cheap Shoutcast’s hosting plans are affordable. You can choose to be billed monthly, six-monthly, or yearly, and you get a 30-day money-back guarantee that might make you feel better about an annual commitment (because you could get out early). Pay by PayPal.
For self-support, Cheap Shoutcast publishes a knowledge base containing guides for shared hosting, dedicated servers, and (it should go without saying) SHOUTcast hosting.
If the self-support resources don’t answer your questions, you can summon 24/7 one-to-one support via email, telephone, ticket, or live chat. Although I couldn’t summon a response via live chat, I’m pleased to say that my exploratory email was answered within a few hours.
