Exclamation Shoutcast Directory Listing Not Free?

I am unable to monetize my new radio channel and be listed in the Shoutcast directory because I'm running SHOUTcast Server v2.5.5.733.

The hosting company I rent from says:

"DONT, If you update the DNA's then you will no longer be allowed to stream anything above 96 kbps without paying SHOUTcast for it"

I failed to find any documentation or press release about this.

Is this true?

Look at this: https://www.shoutcast.com/Pricing

Monetization and MP3 up to 128 kbit/s are free of charge.
Further services are subject to a fee. But please have a look at the website.

If you do not need SHOUTcast, why do you ask?

because some host , who don't know what they are taking about, are trying to give support about things they don't know anything about and this user is believing what they say without checking first shoutcast.com.

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.

Nope, it's not a radiostation just a non stop darkwave music stream

One offers a service and does not even know about the prices. Very funny.

You don't want to know how many "shoutcast offering" hosts don't know how it works and have an account here and ask their questions in the shoutcast part..........

all you need is a server with sufficient bandwidth and you are a host....
simply install the DNAS and advertise.......
