AzuraCast is server-based software that is installed on a VPS, dedicated server or other computer and serves both your station broadcasts and its own web interface through the server's network connection.
You can also install AzuraCast yourself on most server hardware and many computers running Linux.
The easiest way to get started with AzuraCast is to create a new VPS with one of our supported partners via the options below.
Create a new droplet based on our one-click installer from the AzuraCast listing on the DigitalOcean Marketplace.

We have created a specialized guide with installation instructions for users of the Raspberry Pi device series or other similar ARM64-based computers.
If you're looking to install AzuraCast on your Windows installation, this is now possible thanks to the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL2). Follow our Windows-specific guide for tips on how to get AzuraCast up and running easily on a Windows computer.
Ansible installations are intended for seasoned Linux server administrators and are not recommended or officially supported for most users; we strongly recommend Docker installations in a majority of cases. The software we install via Ansible can conflict with other software installed on your server and cause problems which are difficult to diagnose and support. You should be familiar with the Linux terminal and with basic troubleshooting and diagnostic steps if you choose this installation method.
Installing AzuraCast on a Synology NAS involves specific steps, so we've created a unique guide for installation on this platform.
