Radio Ads for 2019 available!

With our expansion in not only audio production, ad campaigning, web hosting/design and now stream hosting, we felt it necessary to provide you with four new commercials! You can listen to them below or request your own copies if you are a campaign partner! Thanks for your continued support and being such a loyal customer here at gbj Imaging, where its not just a great buy, but better imaging!

Broadcasting, the way it was meant to be!

If you’re an internet radio station owner or have worked with streaming servers in the past, you know how complex and difficult they are to setup. Well, recently we just started stream hosting for our clients, unlocking some features that many of the big guys have over looked, that most station owners are looking for!

In January of 2019, gbj Imaging started taking requests for streaming servers. We offer an Icecast2 and SHOUTcast v1 or v2 solution for your streaming server needs! Each server type has its own benefits, but the fact that we can offer our streaming packages with slashed prices from our competitors and offer flexible listener counts and bandwidth limitations, makes us a great choice for any sized streaming package you’re looking for!

Often times, station owners have ran into the issue where they want to run there own 24/7 automation, whilst a live show was going on and conduct a test with a new DJ, presenter or applicant. Many stream hosting providers only allow for dual streaming, but here at gbj Imaging, we offer an unheard of “tri-streaming” feature, giving you the ability to run three sources to a single Icecast2 or SHOUTcast v2 server! Basically, you can run Auto DJ on your streaming server and a live show could be going on at the same time, while testing a new presenter or DJ on your station’s testing mount point, without the fear of the server crashing or hiccuping! Imagine, running three mount points on your Icecast2 or SHOUTcast v2 server with a 384kbps cap! The other guys? They only give you 256kbps. Why pay more for a stream hosting package, when they cap your simultaneous streaming capabilities? Many of our clients found this out for themselves the hard way and we know even more station owners that find this incredibly ridiculous!

Another added bonus we offer is our ‘Economy’, ‘Standard’, ‘Premium’ and ‘Purple+’ Icecast2, SHOUTcast v1 and v2 servers are compliant with most licensing agencies as well as LiveWebDJ, allowing you to license your station and vastly upgrade your station’s automation with amazing tools at your finger tips like ‘clockwheels’, events, DJ Blackouts, scheduled playlists, remote mp3 streaming or even relaying, making gbj Imaging your best choice for a stream hosting provider with the most affordable price around!

If you need a custom package for your internet radio station or personal use, we can help you there as well! Just get in touch with us and see what we can do for you! We’d love to help you out and answer any questions, comments or concerns you may have!

Do you like our new look?

It’s been almost eight years, but our site finally received a makeover! Not only is the site brand new, but we’ve even added a new service to our clients! We think you’ll like the new look and the new stuff can now offer you, our clients!

Let’s break it down!

  • Audio Production

    Ever since we started, we’ve been offering audio production and we’re so glad to be offering our clients a unique sound at an affordable price. We know how hard it is to get a good sounding radio ad, station drop or liner, a killer intro or whatever it is when it comes to audio. Good sounding audio is hard to find at a cheap price! We recently raised our prices, but we bet you can’t find some of the same stuff we offer elsewhere from the professional guys and if you do, you more and likely will have no idea on how it will sound once it’s done. Our guarantee is that we will get your order done the way you want it, even if it means we need to redo it for you!

  • Ad Campaigning

    It’s relatively new, but the idea has been around in our heads here at gbj Imaging for quite awhile. The idea of providing an outlet for our clients to advertise there radio commercials, public service announcements and other radio messages on internet radio comes from the idea of terrestrial radio of course. The problem is, in many cases, it’s to expensive for most small businesses. We open the door to our clients to advertise on internet radio, which is fast becoming the most popular medium for online users everywhere, because of the diverse content that can be heard on many of the internet radio station’s out there! How it works is, you let us know you want to campaign your ad on an internet radio station. We then pay the internet radio station your money to get the campaign to air on there station. Now, you’re probably asking; “Why go through you?” Well, you don’t really, but the internet radio station’s we hand pick have an agreement to follow rules so that your campaign get’s played so many times in a given period. Not to mention, we’re guaranteed approval, because we design your content for you in most cases!

  • Web Hosting / Design

    Since 2015, we’ve been offering web hosting and design. We’re proud to have had the pleasure to service quite a few loyal clients over the years. We’re nowhere near as big as your big hosting provider, but the one comment we get a lot from our clients is that we are extremely helpful. Not only that, but we’ve provided the best up-time humanly possible. We know when you’re site is important and that’s why why take great care in making sure it stays up! No site can offer a 100% up-time, but we can try! You can find three different hosting packages. Our ‘Freebee Web Hosting’ package is obviously just that, free! It comes with some pretty basic features and your own custom second-level domain. Our ‘Basic Web Hosting’ package offers a little bit more and allows you to point your own domain. Our ‘Premium Web Hosting’ package offers even more and includes web design help as well! If you need web design only though, we can help with a Pay-Per-Page deal as well. No matter the choice, you’re sure to be extremely satisfied with what you get!

So, there you have it! Our fresh new look with new features, on a more eye-pleasing website. That’s us! gbj Imaging, providing affordable audio production since 2010, web hosting and design since 2015, and now ad campaigning since 2018! Yes, we are a great buy, but just better imaging! Feel free to explore our website and send us feedback on your thoughts, as we’re always willing to listen. Just visit our contact page and use the simple form and we’ll get it in no time! Thanks for visiting and we hope you’ll enjoy your stay!

Free second-level domain!

We all know about the .com’s, .net’s and other domains out there, but not to many people know about what a second-level-domain is. The few that do know what they are and take advantage of free web hosting! Well, gbj Imaging has been offering free web hosting with it’s own custom second-level domain’s now since 2016. If this sounds intriguing to you, why not get a web hosting account with us?

We may not be able to offer everything that the other web hosting providers can, but we can assure you that our second-level domain’s are search engine friendly. The issue that some of these hosting providers and there domain’s cause is that the domain’s they offer are blocked by search engine’s, because of there shady web addresses. Our ‘’ and ‘’ domain’s are search engine friendly and are accepted by all search engine’s that we know of.

If you’re still confused as to what a second-level domain is, we’ll do our best to explain it as best as we can! A second-level domain is basically a subdomain. Basically, you’re using our purchased ‘’ and ‘’ domain’s, but with your own prefix address (i.e., or are just some examples.) Bottom line, your name is tacked on the front of our domain followed by a period or in website terminology, a dot!

You can get a second-level domain free with a ‘Freebee Web Hosting’ package with us for life! All ‘Freebee Web Hosting’ packages come with 2GB of disk space and bandwidth, 5 email and FTP accounts, 1 MySQL database and more! It’s perfect for the person starting out and wanting to get there feet wet. It’s not meant to offer a lot, but it does help those with a tight budget or want to learn the basics of operating a website.

Of course, we don’t just offer free web hosting, we do offer a basic and premium web hosting package as well. Each with there own special offers. For more information about all our web hosting packages we offer, visit our Web Hosting / Design page under the Services link and see what we can offer you!










Pointing your domain!

If you are an individual unhappy with your current web hosting provider or are looking for one and already have a domain, then this short tutorial will help you to point your domain with your current registrar to an outside hosting provider.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to point your domain to your hosting provider. For obvious reasons, we’ll be using our nameservers in this example, but just know that you’d replace the nameserver details with your own, if you’re not pointing your domain to our nameservers.

  1. Login to your domain registrar!

    “Really? You’re telling me to login to my domain registrar?” Yes! You’d be surprised on how many people don’t even know what a domain registrar is! A domain registrar is a provider to house your domain. In most cases, a lot of your hosting providers will do this for you. However, you can get just a domain and you can point it elsewhere. A prime example of this is GoDaddy! We wouldn’t recommend them personally, but the choice is yours!

  2. Find the nameserver information for your domain!

    Depending on your domain registrar, you need to find the area where you can change the nameserver details for your domain. In the case of Misk, our preferred domain registrar, you find your way to the ‘Control Panel’ and select your domain. It should pull up the summery information of your domain, but it also gives you a link called ‘Nameservers’ and once you follow that link, it allows you to change the information.

  3. Change the nameserver details!

    Nameserver Details

    You’ve found the nameserver details, so let’s change the details. Shall we? First off, keep in mind, these changes can take some time. However, in the event you are switching to gbj Imaging’s nameservers, it whouldn’t be to long of a wait! You’ll see four edit fields, you only need to work with the first two! Do not enter the other two edit fields, unless your hosting provider has specifically told you to do so! If you’re switching to us, then you only need to worry about the first two fields. Just change the fields to the values listed below!

    Field 1:
    Field 2:

    Once you’ve done that, just hit the update button or in the case of your domain registrar, just be sure to save your changes before navigating away from the page.

That’s it! You’re all done! That wasn’t to painful now, was it? Once your domain is pointing to your web hosting provider’s DNS servers, you can then let your web hosting provider know and they’ll go ahead and get to there part and ensure your hosting package is fulfilled. In the case of gbj Imaging, we ask that you have your domain already pointing to our DNS server before you sign up for web hosting with us, because we can’t do much until it is. That’s the case with most hosting providers as well. Regardless, there’s your tutorial on how to point your domain to your hosting provider!
