Video and audio podcast files are normally hosted by a dedicated podcast hosting service. It is possible to host the files on your own hosting package, though your bandwidth costs will increase considerably and you could end up paying hundreds of dollars more every month than you need to. Therefore, it is better to host your podcast on a podcast hosting service.
