Register your radio on SHOUTcast directory
Not long ago, being listed on SHOUTcast.com was as easy as running a SHOUTcast server with the option enabled.
But these days it is a bit complicated because SHOUTcast changed their policy. Now, you have to register your radio manually to generate an authentification hash that will be used to get listed there.
Note that only SHOUTcast 2 servers can be listed in this directory. Since SHOUTcast 1 is no longer supported, learn how to upgrade.
