Al Raed is a SHOUTcast hosting provider. SHOUTcast hosting enables you to stream live audio to listeners via the internet. This is commonly used for internet radio stations. If you’re new to the concept of online broadcasting, we advise you read our guide to starting your own internet radio station here.
Al Raed is the first provider to provide unlimited SHOUTcast hosting, in terms of both listeners and bandwidth. We have no hidden charges, allowing you to broadcast worry-free.
HTML5 Player & Scripts
We know what we’re doing! We’ve made our own custom HTML5 and Flash players, with advanced anti memory-leak technology. Unlike other SHOUTcast flash players, with the Al Raed flash player, you can continue listening for hours on end, and the stream won’t cut out. Additionally, we offer free scripts, enabling you to fully integrate your station with your site, with information such as the current listener count, the current song, or past songs.
Our free “Auto DJ” service enables you to upload and play music directly from our servers when no DJ is connected. We also provide an API for our Auto DJ system, enabling you to give remote users the ability to start and stop the Auto DJ server.
By using some of the best servers and connections available, we are able to provide our clients with optimal minimal-buffer streaming, along with 99.9% uptime.
Custom Control Panel
Al Raed uses a fully custom control panel, giving you simple control over your SHOUTcast server. Our control panel also gives access to statistics, such as the current song and listener count, the hourly listener count, daily usage, and more.
