Your Own Feed Address
Do you also use Google Feedburner to burn your blogs feeds?
If yes, then let me suggest you a way to use your own website feed address i.e. instead of having feeds.feedburner.com/nkjlive you can have feeds.nkjlive.com/nkjlive. We can remove the word feedburner from the feed.
Isn’t it an amazing thing to have? You can even have one common address for all your feeds, the way we use e.g. feeds.nitinkumarjain.in/nkjlive, feeds.nitinkumarjain.in/forumvorum, feeds.nitinkumarjain.in/anugoonj etc.
But to do this you should have access to your DNS account of your domain name. Continue reading if you already have it else go back to your domain manager and ask them to give you access to it.
It is only a minute’s job.
- Go to your manage DNS tool.
- Add a new custom CNAME DNS record having following values:
Name: feeds (you can use any name that you want, it will be the name that comes before your website name i.e. it acts like a subdomain name e.g. feeds.nkjlive.com)
Type: Select record type as CNAME.
Value: Enter “1xifgn8.feedproxy.ghs.google.com.” in the value box. (Notice the last dot in the value)
Above is the Dreamhost DNS management system as an example. You must have similar names if not the same UI in your DNS management tool also.
That is it. You are done.
Now you can access your feeds as feeds.yourdomain.com/feedID instead of feeds.feedburner.com/feedID.
An amazing way to promote your feeds as yours.
