AzuraCast is a free and open-source, self-hosted, all-in-one web radio management suite.
Using AzuraCast and its powerful, intuitive web interface, you can start up a fully working web radio station in a few quick minutes. AzuraCast works for web radio stations of all types and sizes, and is built to run on even the most affordable cloud virtual machines.
This Marketplace application configures the latest stable channel build of AzuraCast, which includes Liquidsoap as an AutoDJ and Icecast as a broadcasting frontend, using the recommended Docker installation method.
AzuraCast is ready to go out of the box. Once your new server is created and ready, visit your server's public IP address (or, if you've already configured it, its domain name) to finish setup by creating an administrator account and setting up your first station.
AzuraCast has built-in support for LetsEncrypt, which provides free SSL certificates to ensure both your web portal and radio station broadcasts are secure and supported in modern browsers.
Follow the Enabling HTTPS with LetsEncrypt guide to get started with LetsEncrypt.
