Streaming media from a HostPapa account

HostPapa offers progressive streaming as part of our hosting packages. This means that you can upload a file to our servers, and then link to it. When visitors access that file, they can then stream it to their computers or download it.

Note: HostPapa does not provide a dedicated streaming server, so you will not be able to run applications like ShoutCast from the servers.

Because we offer progressive streaming, users that are behind firewalls are able to listen to the content as well, since the stream would be going through port 80 (standard port for http traffic). A firewall could prevent users from listening to streams from a dedicated streaming server.

If you need help with your HostPapa account, please open a support ticket from your dashboard.
