Shoutcast Server Hosting CDN

Premium Shoutcast server hosting solutions

Both ROCKHOST.COM, Inc. streaming services, Shoutcast server hosting and Icecast server hosting, present an optional CDN upgrade. The benefits of distributing audio over a content delivery network are proven. Lower latency. Redundant global network nodes return streaming data packets to the listener from the closest proximity. Caching improves buffer speed and produces a much smoother, clearer, connection. Location, location, location.

Another advantage is the adaptive (or fixed) buffer type and size variables in the raw Shoutcast server hosting config file, sc_serv.conf. Advanced users who wish to fine tune Shoutcast 2 to peak performance may do so based on circumstance at their own risk.

Shoutcast Server Hosting CDN

Vanity URLs

Domain names help mask the IP addresses or various other hostnames associated with a parent company. Vanity urls, in turn, keep listener links on brand and their appearance authentic by hiding ugly datacenter details.

SSL Streaming

As the web shifts more and more toward an SSL standard, non-https coded pages are causing unwanted browser warnings and alerts. Secure streaming transmits data through an SSL encryption tunnel.

Port 80 Proxy

Common firewall settings often prohibit the use of streaming port ranges (8000 – 9000) at work and school. An alternative is to provide a web server port 80 proxy for loyal listeners to tune into during the nine to five grind.
