Q: Do you offer Port 80 feature?

A: Yes, each port will cost you an additional $2.99 per month.

Q: What does traffic measure?

A: Traffic represents the amount of data your listeners download from us when they stay connected to your station(s). Every listener will consume a certain amount of traffic that is equal to your bitrate, every second they listen. For example if you stream at 128 kbps ( kilobits per second ) and you have 20 listeners that stay connected for one hour, the usage formula would be: 20 ( listeners ) * 128 ( kilobits ) * 60 ( seconds ) * 60 (minutes ) / 8 ( to transform it from kilobits in kilobytes ) / 1024 ( to transform it from kilobytes in megabytes ) / 1024 ( to transform it from megabytes in gigabytes )
~= 1.10 GB/hour. So, the traffic consumption depends on the number of listeners you have, how long they stay connected to your station(s) for and the bitrate you stream at. When you have almost reached your traffic limit, you will receive an e-mail. If you reach that limit, your account will not be active until you buy extra bandwidth, or until the new billing month begins and the traffic is reset. You can also check your traffic consumption at any time in your account page, by logging into our website.

Once the payment is completed you will receive an email with the login details for your account. Accounts are automatically activated so you will not need to wait for it to be manually activated. If this is your first time you stream online then you can follow an easy step-by-step video tutorial on our website and start your first online stream.
