6/18/2011 – WHMSonic and cPanel

Posted by admin on 18 06 2011.

Today’s Internet solutions differ greatly from those of a few years ago. The inclusion of rich media such as streaming video, Internet radio, digital images, etc. has pushed the limits of the older technology. Fortunately, many areas now have access to a broadband Internet connection and many of those former limits either have been pushed further out, or have been removed altogether.


Although there are many web hosts who continue to limit their client’s capabilities to provide certain rich media experiences for their users, there are perhaps just as many that do not. While the reasons for these limits may be as varied as the kinds of server setups that are in service, the applications that allow websites to offer rich media is not so limited in scope. One of these applications is WHMSonic.


[toggle title=”What is WHMSonic?”]

WHMSonic is a server side application that allows our clients to offer ShoutCast streaming media to their users. Although there may be other uses for the application, the websites that use it are primarily involved in some form of Internet radio endeavor. If you are concerned about your client’s bandwidth usage, a feature is provided that will address that concern. In addition, this application is not intended for use on shared hosting. Installation instructions are only provided for dedicated or VPS servers.
