What is podcast hosting?GoDaddy Podcast Hosting is a podcast hosting service where your website and your audio and video files are stored on a server to be broadcast to your users over the internet. If you have a website with an episodic series of digital audio or video files that a user can download and listen to on their own, this would be defined as a podcast.

Does GoDaddy provide me with statistics (downloads, listener behavior, etc.) of my podcast?We do not provide statistical data directly for podcast information collected by the site. However, using the Dashboard interface in your GoDaddy WordPress product, you are able to install additional plugins that will allow you to track data from your hosted podcasts.
Can I host multiple podcasts with my GoDaddy account?Yes, you can add multiple podcasts to the same site or if you have multiple sites you can opt for our Ultimate or Developer platforms to create more websites for your podcasts. To learn more about your options for podcast hosting services, visit our WordPress hosting page.
If I import my podcast to GoDaddy, will I lose current subscribers?To avoid losing subscribers when switching hosting providers, you will want to create a 301 redirect. Using the Podcast Hosting Interface, you can install a redirect plugin to create a 301 redirect of your old Podcast RSS feed (i.e. http://domain.provider.com/rss) to the updated RSS feed for your new podcast account. We try to create the best user experience for you and your listeners.
