XDnet has recently changed the control panel on our main shoutcast server from WHMsonic to CentovaCast which provides more features to end users and will hopefully prove to be a much better streaming experience!
Because of this change we have had to recreate users account which has meant a temporary downtime on streams, this was unavoidable and we are sorry for any users affected, all users who should be are now back online.
Over the coming weeks we will be publishing the new shoutcast plans and also hope to get some in depth tutorials of shoutcasts features and how to get the most out of your stream.
We are pleased to announce that we are currently completely revamping out shoutcast structures and packages.
We are currently putting together the new packages, which we hope to get into our system, and the website within the next few days.
Existing Shoutcast users:
We are in the process of setting up your streaming accounts on the new server (info about the new french DC will be added soon) and will email you the details once everything is complete.
Also it should be noted that unlike the US shoutcast which includes hosting we have chosen not to include this, to provide a better hosting experience for all users the shoutcast server will be used exclusively for shoutcast.
Of course we aren’t going to leave users without web hosting for their sites, so we are transferring the streaming to a similar package and providing all existing shoutcast users a FREE Basic web hosting account (you can of course upgrade hosting should you need to).
We are also in the process of transferring clients website files to the new hosting accounts, please bare in mind any changes made to your settings or files on the US Shoutcast account may not be fully synced to the hosting and/or stream. If you have made changes inform us and we can make sure everything is properly synced to avoid issues.
Domains, any users who currently have domains for their shoutcast, domains managed by XDnet will automatically be re-configured to point to our server when required, domains managed by other registrars please contact support so we can advise on required changes.
