Castos is a prominent podcast hosting service that has been helping numerous companies by providing an easy-to-use platform with awesome features to manage and grow podcasting businesses. It offers unlimited podcast hosting services, provides detailed analytics and integrates seamlessly with WordPress.

Companies like ‘Serious Eats’, ‘Ahrefs’, and ‘Canada’s Podcast’ depend on Castos for their podcasting needs. Larger entities like Forbes also have chosen Castos because of its unlimited hosting, advanced analytics, and WordPress integration.

It breathes life into podcast series of every scale, whether it be a small scale entrepreneur running a single podcast or a large company managing multiple series. So it does not come as a surprise that this technology is currently being used by over 20,000 podcasters.


While Castos has seen its popularity grow across the globe, its implementation in China has faced a fair share of challenges. Primarily these have been in terms of speed issues due to compatibility problems, and certain legal and compliance hurdles.

Websites using Castos in China often encounter loading issues. This is because most data centres for Castos are in far-off locations, which poses serious latency issues, resulting in a slow-loading site.

Moreover, the unique legal and compliance landscape in China also poses its challenges. Without local hosting, websites may be blocked by the “Great Firewall”. Providing services in China requires an ICP license and various other compliances to be met. Not adhering to them poses a serious legal risk.

With regards to infrastructure, Castos is hosted on Amazon Web Services. It leverages AWS’s infrastructure for high availability, scalability, and security protection, serving users worldwide.
