Your podcast website with Acast

A beautiful, SEO-friendly website designed for you and your podcast

Updated over a week ago

At Acast, our goal is to enable you as podcasters to reach your fans and grow your audience everywhere. Having a beautiful, up-to-date podcast website is essential for this. So we've spent several months designing and building gorgeous podcast websites for all our podcasters. This article will explain some of the best features of Acast's podcast websites and how to set yours up.

In order to maintain the high quality service expected by our users, we took the decision to offer the podcast website customisation only in our paid plans starting June 19th, 2023.

Any website customisation that took place before this change will remain as it is. If you wish to further customise this page, we will be happy to help you upgrade your account!

Skip to:

To get started, go to your show, and select the Website tab.

By enabling my podcast website, you'll see five main sections: General, Links, Style, Hosts and Additional Information.

1. Basic setup

Here's where you set up the main home page for your site, including the title and subtitle. Acast automatically fetches these from your podcast, but you can override these if you prefer.

This is the general layout of your home page.

Comments: You can include Facebook comments or Disqus comments on your podcast website also. This is a great way to let your listeners interact with and provide feedback on your show. 

2. Engage your fans

In the Links section, you can specify two kinds of links: Follow links are links for listeners to follow your podcast and get notifications about new episodes (like iTunes or Google Podcasts), and Social links are links to your social media outlets (like Facebook or Twitter).

When you provide these links, Acast produces attractive badges for your podcast website, like these:

3. Create your own look

In the Style section, there is the flexibility to customise many of the elements on your show's website.

Colour Scheme - Choose from a preset, create a custom colour scheme or pick colours from your show cover

Fonts - Selection of Google Fonts you can customise between the Heading and Body of your website text

Style - Customise and preview button style

4. Introduce yourselves

Add host details with social media links for your website's About Us page.

Name, profile picture and direct links to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram can all be updated, along with a custom bio.

5. Additional information

If you are required by applicable law to list contact information for the person or legal entity that is responsible for the podcast/website, you can use the text box in this tab. You can find more information here. This will display on your podcast website.

Here's a quick video demo from one of our live tutorials.
