Do you use Aweber? There abit like Feedburner in the way your emails get sent from someone else’s address on your behalf. Feedburner (google) allow you to create an alias so you can promote your own rss feed URL rather than Feedburners. This is better for branding and makes your content delivery more personal.
Google’s RSS manager, Feedburner call this ‘Mybrand’ which is located in your feedburner account.
If you don’t have an RSS manager, click on the feedburner account link above and go to My Account where you will find MyBrand. Here’s what it looks like.
First you’ll need to create a cname entry in your servers cpanel. Once logged in, navigate to Domains and click on Simple DNS Zone Editor. (Yours maybe DNS Zone Editor without the Simple depending on your choice of host.)
Then add the name of your own branded feed, feeds.yourdomain.com and enter the cname record from your google feedburner account, Mybrands and click Add CNAME record.
This may be a different setup depending on which host you use. Make sure the type you are creating is cname, that you copy the CNAME value. This is highlighted text directly to the right of “feeds CNAME.” This text will look something like: abcdefg.feedproxy.ghs.google.com. (be sure to leave in the final dot.)
You can see what i have done below in the screenshot. I’ve added feeds.wordpresssites.net and 504rh2.feedproxy.ghs.google.com.
The red text for yours will be different and your new feed URL can be anything.yourdomain.com. I have named its feeds.mydomain.net
That’s it. You don’t need to create any redirections as you have just created an alias for your feedburner feed. In my case my feedburner feed is http://feeds.feedburner.com/wordpresssites
My new branded feed URL is now http://feeds.feedburner.com/wpsitesdotnet
I can now use MyBrand feed which will redirect to my feedburner account
There’s no technical support for MyBrand however your host will be able to help you with adding a CNAME record. The rest is in your hands.
FeedBurner provides no technical support for MyBrand; you must configure DNS settings correctly with your domain/web hosting provider’s help. More technical detail and discussion of the requirements for using this service are available in this Help topic.
It can take up to 24 hours for a new CNAME entry to take effect. If your new feed address isn’t working, have a nice day and check back tomorrow.
Here’s another post bluehost has given me from someone else who advises to modify your header as well. This is something i didn’t do and didn’t need. These 3 WordPress hosts will all help you host your own feed on your own server.
