Introducing Resonate Hosting

Resonate Hosting is an easier way to distribute your podcast to Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and more

What if you could distribute your podcast to Apple, Spotify, and Google Podcasts on the same platform you use for editing and mixing your podcast? 

That would mean no more downloading your episode master, logging into a separate podcast hosting platform, uploading the file, typing out your episode title and description, scheduling a publish date, and submitting it. 

That would mean…
  • Less work. 
  • Less accounts and logins. 
  • More efficiency. 
  • More time for creating content. 
Resonate Hosting allows you to do just that: host your podcast on the same platform you trust for professional editing, mixing, and mastering services, Resonate Recordings.

What is Resonate Hosting?

Resonate Hosting distributes your podcast to the world, and collects detailed analytics so you can study how your audience interacts with your content. It also provides solutions for public and private RSS feeds so you can easily determine who has access to the content you’re distributing.

Why do you need podcast hosting? 

It’s simple. You need an RSS feed to submit your podcast to podcast directories like Spotify. The hosting platform is where all of the information about your podcast lives and where the RSS feed is generated so that your podcast is available on directories like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, and many more. 

Resonate Hosting Features

With so many hosting providers available we wanted to make sure that Resonate Hosting was truly unique. So what makes Resonate Hosting different? Here are all of the features we built for V1.

Built for Speed

We built Resonate Hosting to be fast, but we were surprised by the performance. Our team did a benchmark test against the other Podcast Hosting platforms and here is what we found:

  • In our tests, audio hosted on Resonate downloaded twice as fast as files hosted on Libsyn.
  • Resonate Hosting has the fastest feed download speed.
