Podcastics: Podcast Hosting Review

Provides tools to host, share, and monetize your podcast’s content. Podcasters have created Podcastics for podcasters to make podcasting as simple as possible.

 Distribute your podcast to major streaming listening services and social media channels. With CDN (content distribution network), get your podcast delivered and listened to people in every continent.

 Monetize with ad insertions and sponsored members’ purchases. All website and modern audio players are equipped with a Support button for listeners to fund your show.

Podcastics believes that your podcast should be fully transparent with you and won’t do anything without your permission, like putting in ads or adding a Podcasting logo to disrupt your brand’s status.

Best for Beginner or New Podcasters with Multiple Podcasts

Use the built-in support system to get help from the team at any stage of your podcast. Open tickets and track all of your requests for later reference instead of digging in a cluttered email box.

With a single Podcastics account, you can manage as many podcasts as you want (each plan can be a free or paid plan). Better yet, unlimited episodes per podcast.

Once you’ve logged in, you can switch between your podcasts with one click.

Podcastics offers podcast management abilities, in-depth statistics tools, and its stunning audio players.

Get an automatic website generated for your podcast players and episode detailed captions. This is great for beginners if you’ve never created a website before.

If you already have a hosting provider, you can still use it to upload your audio files instead of a separate website.

 User Impression/Reviews

 One user review stated a positive experience with Podcastics. Finally, these podcasters found a company that is providing real value for them in podcast hosting. Podcastics is super easy as, within a few hours, they had their podcast hosting set up, an RSS feed created, and a beautiful custom website with a player. Additionally, the podcast got approved by Apple in record time. (It was approved overnight).

The staff at Podcastics have been very attentive and reliable in their customer service and the answering of questions. They’ve been out of the podcast game for a few years, so they needed to get more inclined to new social media marketing changes. The staff gave them helpful guidance and support in this area and explained everything about the QR code’s awesome feature. The QR codes are very helpful and easy tools to direct listeners to users’ podcasts.

 They highly recommend Podcastics, and they are free to try out.
