Important update regarding nixCraft RSS/Feed

Posted on in Categories Linux News last updated May 5, 2017

I am retiring Feedburner RSS (Rich Site Summary) feed URL. Please update your RSS/Feed URL as follows:

  1. Old outdated Feedburner URL: http://feeds.feedburner.com/Nixcraft-LinuxFreebsdSolarisTipsTricks
  2. New URL: https://www.cyberciti.biz/atom/atom.xml

Why change feed URL?

feeds.cyberciti.biz is an alias to Google service ghs.l.google.com (DNS CNAME). First, I believe Google is going to kill this service sooner or later. Second, there is no SSL/TLS support at Google for custom domain alias i.e. https://feeds.cyberciti.biz/Nixcraft-LinuxFreebsdSolarisTipsTricks. Third HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) requires all sub-domains on SSL too. Hence, this change was necessary.

What about my FeedBurner email subscription?

You will be automatically migrated to my weekly newsletter service.

TL;DR: Please use new RSS/feed URL.
