How Much Does it Cost to Host a Podcast on Amazon AWS?

Is hosting a podcast on Amazon AWS a good idea? Who better to ask than someone who does it… us.

Our podcast uses Cloudfront in front of an Amazon S3 bucket, which hosts the audio. We only use the United States, Canada and EU edge servers for Cloudfront, which keeps the price down.

Our RSS feed also uses Cloudfront, in front of an EC2 server. For the below, we’ve assumed that you’ve simply uploaded the RSS feed to Amazon S3 as well.

To ensure we got decent data, we looked at our own podcast stats for the week of 21-27 July 2019.
