Free Podcast Hosting

Free Podcast Hosting is a bad idea

Free Podcast Hosting is not necessarily free. The biggest problem with this idea is that you will put all of your hopes in the quality of service of your audio in the hands of a host that isn't able to give you any guarantees of quality of service, and isn't incented to invest in their own infrastructure because you are not paying anything for hosting. Its a BAD DEAL!

There's an old saying.... "You pay peanuts, you get monkeys!". That is so appropriate when it comes to picking a Podcast Hosting provider. We get so many people moving to our services at CyberEars.com who have hosted with other hosting providers and complain of lack of service, VERY slow speeds, being relegated to less than sturdy or quick servers, and their listeners are just not hearing their content.

Free Podcasting is bad


Thinking of hosting with a FREE, Low Quality Podcast host? NOT a good idea if you want to be listed on iTunes. Read below:

Most listeners will find your audio podcasts by searching for topics that they like on podcast registries. The biggest of these registries is Apple's iTunes. In order to be listed on iTunes, you need a proper RSS feed setup, and quality hosting of content. If you choose a host that gives you slow, unreliable content, there is a high chance you will be removed without warning from iTunes. Here's an excerpt from Apple's web site:

"In most cases, we will remove the podcast from iTunes, especially if we find that the podcast is no longer available at the feed URL." and

"Your podcast may be rejected for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to: Technical problems, usually the lack of episodes or the inability to download or play episodes."

So quality counts. You go to the trouble to record your Podcast... Don't disrespect it by putting it on a low grade host and expecting it to be a big hit.

 

Let's face it... You spend a lot of money, time and energy putting together the best audio show you can. Once you finish the production and upload it to a host, you want to know that the audio will get heard. After all, that's why you recorded it. There is no guarantee of service provided with hosts that offer less than professional hosting services, and you'll never know if people can't find you or hear you. Sure, you might get the odd person telling you that they had problems downloading your Podcast. But by then its too late. Its the people that don't get to hear you, that will never tell you that they couldn't hear your show.

Do you really want to put all of your faith that your podcast will get heard if you place it with a FREE host? Is that really sensible? Otherwise it suggests that your attention to your own production is reflected in the host that you choose to serve it to the world. Its just not good business.

We, at CyberEars.com, go about this in a different way. We offer you a FREE trial of our services. If you like the quality, sign up. If not, no problem. But at the end of the day we have so much faith in the quality of service that we can offer that we believe you will choose us as your host. For the right reasons.

And with hosting services starting at only $4.95, its less than the cost of a pizza each month. Doesn't your precious audio recordings deserve at least that?

So try us out. SIGN UP for a free trial account with CyberEars.com and get started. You'll be glad you did.
