The Best Alternative to Libsyn for Podcast Hosting

Are you looking for a Libsyn alternative?

With so many podcast hosting platforms available, it’s essential to find the service that best suits your budget, audience, and goals.

Here are just a few reasons podcasters choose RSS.com over Libsyn’s free and paid plans:

  • They are looking for unlimited storage space
  • Don’t want limits on the length of their episodes
  • Want access to advanced analytics without paying a steep monthly fee

💰 RSS.com Offers More Bang for the Buck

Without carefully reviewing plans, Lisbyn and RSS.com might seem like similar podcast hosting services. However, once you take a closer look at what’s offered, there are a few crucial differences!

While both of our introductory plans have similar costs, Libsyn offers six different price tiers that cost up to $150 per month. That means some features, like advanced cross-platform analytics, are only available with the more expensive plans.

In contrast, RSS.com has a much more straightforward pricing system that features two different plans – Educational & Non-Profit  ($4.99 per month) and RSS Podcaster ($12.99 per month). We also offer a 35% discount on the RSS Podcaster plan for choosing annual instead of monthly billing.

RSS.com Offers Unlimited Storage – Libsyn Does Not

Another point we differ on is storage. If you plan on actively publishing episodes, this is a key point to pay attention to!

RSS.com features unlimited storage across all plans, while Lisbyn’s storage limits range from 50 MB to 3000 MB per month, depending on which price tier you choose.

RSS.com Offers a Free Trial – Libsyn Does Not

We are so confident you’ll love our platform, service, and features that we let you set up your show and publish your first episode for free.

Libsyn does not offer any kind of free trial.
