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.
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.

Dynamic Ad Insertion (DAI)
Dynamic Ad Insertion (DAI) is a tool that lets you upload audio files (ads, announcements, etc) to your podcast episodes for a period of time, and then automatically remove them at the end of that time. With Resonate Hosting, you can now attach dynamic content to your podcast episodes as pre-roll, mid-roll, and post-roll ads.
Host campaigns, announce upcoming events, or let listeners know what you’re up to now no matter what episode they start listening to. Learn more about what DAI in Resonate hosting can do by visiting our Help Center.
