For the last couple of years, I’ve been hosting my podcast mp3s and RSS feed files on a DreamObjects server. Admittedly, I’ve never known for sure if this is a best practice, but I assumed it was a better approach than simply placing all of the files in my standard shared hosting directory. (I’ve been reluctant to host the files via a site like LibSyn because their services and fees seem to be directed at non-developers.)
I’ve recently realized a downside of hosting a podcast in DreamObjects occurs when your DreamObjects hostname is unexpectedly set to change, which I’ve been informed mine will by September 2016.
