- Select Create a New Podcast to create a new podcast from scratch and manage your podcast directly from your Castos account.
- Select Import Existing Podcast to import your existing podcast from another podcast hosting provider.
- Select Connect to WordPress if you have a WordPress website and would like to manage your podcast there using our Seriously Simple Podcasting plugin.
- Select Exit to Dashboard if you would like to explore the Castos dashboard before setting up a new podcast.
Already have a podcast you’d like to import from another hosting provider?

Enter your podcast's current RSS feed URL and, once validated, click Import.
You're all set! We'll confirm via email when your podcast has been imported.
