internet product smallthumbnail 5    In response to needs we have seen from some of our clients we are now offering complete packages for small to medium sized online radio broadcasters. Let Common Sense Sites help with the complicated mess of getting online streaming radio going for you.  We prefer a setup where the streaming radio host and website host are seperate so that if one goes offline with any problems you will not lose both your site and your radio all at once and the price examples listed here are for that type of setup. If you prefer, there are some server providers that can do both in one system for a bit less money.

This includes setting up an initial website with various information showing in realtime about your station, the current song, how to tune in, how to request or comment, and the last songs played.

Common Sense Sites will contact and setup your stations streaming audio hosting with one of the more reliable providers in the USA, and configure your webpages to work with that hosting. All you have to do is add the music and/or stream to your station - and we can help you get going with all of that.


Starting packages, depending on number of listeners and quality can be quite affordable. Check with us for more information.

Ongoing monthly costs for the stream and web hosting together can be under $25 for a package capable of supporting 50 listeners with a quality of 96kbps stream.

    Contact us today for the URLs of some existing stations we have done and check them out then shout back to let us know if we can help you get your broadcasting on the internet soon.





   Over the last four months we have been working to improve the ranking of some of our more popular sites - using some very simple tools and editing the way the site is scanned by search engines.  

   The results have been very good.  

Approximately one third of the over 100 websites which we have currently in operation were rendered useless late tuesday afternoon December 9th 2014 by what is now known to be DDoS attacks to our primary website hosting provider, 1 and 1 Internet.

  For the clients of CommonSenseSites and SiteSmythe this affected 35 various sites that we are aware of.  A distributed denial of service  (DDoS) attack is when a group of many systems all attempt to request information from a single site. Each one of the attackers will try many hundreds of times a minute -causing it to be overloaded with requests and either very slow or useless to legitimate requests from viewers on the Internet.  As this is not an equipment failure - or a section of the network that has failed and can be repaired, it can be a very difficult problem to fix.
