Find a Hosting Solution

Use a hosting provider

Apple doesn't host podcasts or store artwork or episode audio files. Instead, Apple Podcasts is a directory of user-submitted shows available for download from third-party servers. A host takes the elements that form your podcast and creates an RSS feed, and you submit it to Podcasts Connect. You can create an RSS feed and host it through a podcast hosting provider.

Hosting providers can help manage your RSS feed, investigate technical issues, and more.

Manage your own web server

You can create a podcast RSS feed and host it on your own web server.

Apple strongly encourages you to use a hosting server that supports SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). This security technology will allow you to generate an HTTPS RSS feed URL. For example, https://applehosted.podcasts.apple.com/hikingtreks.xml. 

Keep in mind that any RSS feed you create must conform to our podcast requirements
