AzuraCast is a self-hosted, all-in-one web radio management suite. Using this AzuraCast 1-Click App and its powerful, intuitive web interface, you can start up a fully working web radio station in a few quick minutes. AzuraCast works for web radio stations of all types and sizes, and is built to run on even the most affordable cloud virtual machines.

Simple, Self-Hosted Web Radio

With the AzuraCast 1-Click App, you can be up and running with a new self-hosted web radio station in record time. The AzuraCast 1-Click App configures the latest release build of AzuraCast on a Droplet, which includes Liquidsoap as an AutoDJ and Icecast as a broadcasting frontend, using the recommended Docker installation method.

Software Included

Getting started after deploying AzuraCast

AzuraCast 1-Click droplets are ready to go out of the box. Visit your new droplet's public IP address (or, if you've already configured it, its domain name) to finish setup by creating an administrator account and setting up your first station.

Setting up LetsEncrypt

AzuraCast has built-in support for LetsEncrypt, which provides free SSL certificates to ensure both your web portal and radio station broadcasts are secure and supported in modern browsers.

Follow the Enabling HTTPS with LetsEncrypt guide to get started with LetsEncrypt.


The AzuraCast 1-Click installer includes our Docker Utility Script, installed in the recommended directory, /var/azuracast. This script handles the majority of common installation management tasks, including updates, backup and restoration, and setting up LetsEncrypt. You can see the full set of commands available via the utility script in our documentation.

AzuraCast has two release channels:

  • Stable releases, which are less frequent but more stable builds that have been tested by numerous users before being deployed, and
  • Rolling releases, which include all code changes made to AzuraCast on an ongoing basis and is often updated multiple times a day.

By default, your 1-Click installation is on the stable release channel.

To update your installation to the latest stable release version, log in to your droplet as any user who is in the docker group (including root) and run:

cd /var/azuracast
./ update-self
./ update

Switching to Rolling Releases

Learn more about release channels. To switch to the "rolling release" channel, log in to your droplet and run this command:

cd /var/azuracast
./ update-self
./ setup-release

API Creation

In addition to creating a Droplet from the AzuraCast 1-Click App via the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API.

As an example, to create a 4GB AzuraCast Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You’ll need to either save your API access token to an environment variable or substitute it into the command below.

  curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
       -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
      '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image":"azuracast-20-04"}' \
