hey everyone this is Keith a passive income pulse and I want to help you guys out with this little tutorial on how to host your podcast files so I tried to do this as last week my first my first podcast which was what is passive income pulse here and I was a little confused about how to host my podcast files if it was something I had to pay for or if I could just use my current hosting to do that and you can use your current hosting which I use Bluehost which I highly recommend let me show you how you can set up the hosting of your podcast files right within your own hosting system so I'm gonna go to my file manager specifically for passive income pulse here and I am going to go to the public HTML area and then click on add new folder okay when I click on that I can name the folder podcast which you can see that right here then I just keep everything lowercase for that folder because it is case sensitive when you put it into the actual URL anyway I would then just upload my mp3 file and voila it's it's done pretty much I mean all you have to do is go up and put in the folder name podcast and then P ip0 mp3 ok and then your mp3 mp3 will show up now make sure like I said this is case sensitive so if I had done lower case VIP it would have just been a 404 page so its case sensitive then copy that and if you're using power press which I am just imagining you are because you're probably on WordPress you will stick that URL into this right here and then click the verify and it will say yeah verified it's all good see ok so that's it I mean you're you've got your first podcast post ready to go it's all hosted you didn't have to pay anything no confusion just do it with your own host which I recommend blue house of course so anyway that's my tutorial I hope you've enjoyed it good luck with you guys with your podcasting any questions or comments feel free to ask I look forward to helping you out .
Some of the tools I use:
I just went through the process of hosting my mp3 files on my first podcast this last week and thought it would be helpful to do a little tutorial for you guys. It's actually really easy to host your files and does not cost any more money then your monthly hosting.
Go ahead and use my link to get bluehost hosting for your website. Once you've done that you'll see in the video how you are able to create a folder and place your mp3 file in that folder for your podcast hosting. I hope you enjoy the tutorial and feel free to ask me any questions.
