"Professional but approachable and friendly"
What do you like best about Castos?
For creating our new podcast, we carefully evaluated a few service providers. The seamless integration of Castos was the winner. The fact that they provide tools for all our needs, from hosting our audio to providing transcripts, while we continue using wordpress and their plugins for our site, was the reason we think Castos is best. Pricing is competitive, service outstanding. They ask the users how they can be of service. If it's the other way around and i need help, they respond quickly.
What do you dislike about Castos?
Why is this field required, i really don't know downsides.
What problems is Castos solving and how is that benefiting you?
We needed something both easy and powerfull. Castos is that.

"User friendly, perfect for a beginner podcaster"
What do you like best about Castos?
Very user-friendly website, with helpful guides to help guide you through each step of the way. Includes a trial period, with an affordable subscription available beyond that point.
What do you dislike about Castos?
Having used Castos for only a couple of months so far, I am yet to come across any downsides! Guess this is another reason why I strongly recommend this hosting platform.
What problems is Castos solving and how is that benefiting you?
Helped me to launch a podcast and then distribute it - all with ease, minimal time and cost. Has enabled me to continue this side hustle while also holding down a full-time job.

"Ease of use and great service"
What do you like best about Castos?
Ease of use and great customer service are my favorite things about Castos. I love the option to have folks produce or edit your podcasts for you too! I haven't used any other podcast hosting platforms but I can't see myslef ever leaving Castos
What do you dislike about Castos?
Lots of emails come through from their marketing team but I don't think there's anything wrong with the actual product itself!
What problems is Castos solving and how is that benefiting you?
RSS feeds were a mystery to me so I love that Castos handles all of that. My cohost and I are now thinking of using the editing and producing features as well which is a huge time saver.

"I've tried them all, Castos is my recommendation"
What do you like best about Castos?
First of all, Castos has the best pricing model, with nearly everything being unlimited. Beyond that, Castos is easy to use ESPECIALLY if you're hosting your podcast on Wordpress. Castos has everything a podcaster needs from hosting to editing services, private subscribers to advanced analytics. It's really the best choice out there.
What do you dislike about Castos?
I wish I could add another podcast on another domain to my account so everything could be managed from one login. Would also like role-based Wordpress permissions on the plugin.
What problems is Castos solving and how is that benefiting you?
I've tried a lot of podcast hosting services, Castos allows me to run my podcast from Wordpress without having to copy and paste anything. It also gives me the ability to run a podcast network from a single account.

"Robb's Review of Castos"
What do you like best about Castos?
I like the ease of use. It is very easy to navigate so I can get things done in a time-efficient manner. I can go directly to one of my podcasts and edit on an as-needed basis without any grief or aggravation. Editing support content is relatively easy and painless. Castos allows you to import content from a WordPress post which certainly expedites the process. You can add backlinks to your text-based content which is always a good thing. I like the company. They are very easy to work with and have very fair billing rates. As long as you list the other platforms with the appropriate URLs, Castos automatically exports your podcast. Having my podcasts automatically exported to Itunes and Google is a very nice feature.
What do you dislike about Castos?
I wish they had some high-end audio editing tools and I would like to see Castos have more relationships with related vendors but I have to think that's coming at some point.
What problems is Castos solving and how is that benefiting you?
Distributing my audio content in a cost-effective, time-effective manner. Increased exposure to people who did not even know my store existed until they heard my podcasts.

"Very easy and quick!"
What do you like best about Castos?
I'm really enjoying castos at the moment, I love that you can have multiple podcasts and it's easy to share, however I do with it had automatic sharing of podcasts for Apple and Google because there was a slight learning curve for adding the podcast to those platforms and now I have loads of random accounts. Also it's very easy to monetise!
What do you dislike about Castos?
I wish it was slightly easier up get podcasts on every platform, possible like a 'single click' thing. It's not the end of the world but it is somewhat of a pain having so many accounts for other platforms.
What problems is Castos solving and how is that benefiting you?
It makes uploading podcasts to platforms very easy so it solves that problem and it gives me an RSS feed. The feature like having multiple podcasts in one place is good

"Easy to use and LOTS of support."
What do you like best about Castos?
I appreciated being coached through every phase of the process, and left the experience feeling fully equipped not only to start and manage my podcast professionally, but to link it to my other digital properties for a seamless user and promotional experience.
What do you dislike about Castos?
There is very little I didn't like about the process. At first it was a little confusing and it took a little while to get it set up and connected with my website.
What problems is Castos solving and how is that benefiting you?
I had no idea how to start or manage a podcast but I knew I had a great idea and was a niche in the market. With just a little time invested, and with the support of the Castos coaching, I sucessfully launched my podcast. I've received great feedback already and traffic is up on my website.

"Easy to use platform for a reasonable price"
What do you like best about Castos?
I like how easy Castos is to use and get started. I had my podcast up and running in an afternoon. Their technical documentation makes it simple to get your show onto many different platforms, and you can even use Castos to host a basic podcast website. They also offer a quick copy for embed code to share your podcast on your own website.
What do you dislike about Castos?
The main weakness of Castos seems to be its analytics. Nearly all my listens come from generic web browsers, but my website analytics show that not many people are listening directly from the website, so I'm not sure where those listens are occurring. Additionally, you can't see how many unique listeners (e.g. repeat downloaders) vs new listeners you're getting, and you can't track listeners through episodes. A friend using

gets these kinds of data so I know it's possible from a podcast host.
What problems is Castos solving and how is that benefiting you?
I've got my podcast up and running, and can easily release my weekly episodes without much difficulty. I also enjoy the resources shared by Castos in their newsletter and blog.
