Suspected as much re: the Shoutcast server but thought I would check. Cheers for answering.

As Iain said it is not possible to run Shoutcast, although you could have media files stored and rely on the clients server streaming the audio, but this would not be ideal.

Additional bandwidth is 0.75 (75p) per 10GB.

Hosting accounts cannot run server software. For that you would require RPS or Dedicated Server.

I have the basic, Personal hosting account. Is it possible to run a Shoutcast server from one of these? if not is it easy to use it as the repository for all the media files? Although I would rather run a random playlist, rather than a built one, so not sure if this would complicate matters.

Also, due to this question I have been looking around the main site, the Help pages and in the Manager to try and fine prices for extra bandwidth allowance and for monthly bandwidth upgrades but I don't seem to be able to find either. Can somebody please link me to a list of prices.
