Step 4: Redirect your podcast from iVoox

After completing Step 3, your podcast is still hosted on iVoox. We need to do a 301 Redirection from iVoox to Firstory, so that the platforms you're currently on would know that you have moved your RSS.

iVoox is one of the podcast hosting platforms that does not support automatic 301 redirection. So we recommend that you write to iVoox customer support directly to ask for their help in 301 redirection.

You can contact iVoox through here: https://ivoox.zendesk.com/hc/es-es/requests/new

Here's a message template you can use (Feel free to use Spanish):

Hi iVoox,

I am moving my podcast to another hosting provider.

Could you please help me with my 301 Redirection?

My new RSS feed is : ((enter your Firstory RSS from Step 3 here))


Thank you

Sincerely,

((Your name here))

After 301 Redirection, you can start using Firstory as your new podcast hosting provider. Here are some things you should know after moving to Firstory:

Note:

  • IF iVoox does not help with 301 redirection, your podcast is NOT affected and is still hosted on iVoox. Don't worry, nothing is changed

  • IF iVoox does not help with 301 redirection, you CAN still switch to Firstory, but you have to write to every streaming service (e.g. Spotify, Apple Podcasts, etc) and let them know that you have changed your RSS feed.

  • Writing to every streaming service may seem like some extra work, but it is most definitely worth it. You can enjoy all the free and exclusive stuff on Firstory after you make the switch

Feel free to contact us through our live chat support, Discord community, or email for any questions or assistance with redirecting to Firstory.
