    301 redirect for podcast RSS feed

    Hello,

     

    I have always had my domain registered with GoDaddy but used to have it point to my podcast page on the LibSyn site. That is where my podcast RSS feed existed so the domain name was part of the RSS feed URL (i.e. http://domain.com/rss).  I set up a new site via WordPress on GoDaddy and switched the DNS to point to this site and it messed up my RSS feed being picked up by iTunes, Stitcher, etc.

     

    So I got the direct RSS feed from LibSyn (i.e. http://domain.libsyn.com/rss) and resubmitted to those podcasts directories.  It was suggested by LibSyn to create a 301 redirect that points the old RSS feed url (domain.com/rss) to the new one (domain.libsyn.com/rss) to avoid some subscribers losing the feed without manually going back and resubscribing.

     

    What is the easiest way to set up that 301 redirect?  I tried searching for a solution but didn't find one to match my needs (or at least it didn't appear so).  With a managed WordPress site, do I have to ftp to the index level of my site and add something there?  Would a simple page to replace the /rss with a meta refresh work?


    I'm a bit confused, thanks for the help.  And let me know if you need any more context.
