    Question Anybody here use Feedburner for their blog? Issue with MyBrand set-up

    We have done everything as per the guidelines here to set-up Feedburner to use our own URL (called MyBrand).

    The CNAME has been changed to:
    feeds CNAME feeds.azam.info.

    Our normal Feedburner URL is http://feeds.feedburner.com/azam

    So I presume the new one should be http://feeds.azam.info/azam

    However, this goes to a 404 Not Found page.

    http://feeds.azam.info/ shows an Apache page which says "Great Success !
    Apache is working on your cPanel® and WHM™ Server" whereas other subdomains don't, so does that mean CNAME is correctly configured? If so, why is MyBrand not working?

    I have waited 24 hours since the CNAME was set-up and tried repeatedly.

    Can anyone help please?

    The CNAME needs to point to some address FeedBurner provided, not to your own server. The purpose is to direct requests for that (sub)domain to FeedBurner's servers, which won't happen if you're pointing to yourself still.

    Got it and works now. Silly mistake. Thanks so much Dan (haven't used Sitepoint much for last few years and a delight to see you still here ).
