When you move your podcast to Alitu, it’s highly recommended that you set up a 301 redirect with your previous hosting.

The 301 redirect tells directories such as Apple Podcast, Spotify, etc., that you have a new host.

You can grab your Alitu RSS feed inside your Settings section > Distribution tab.

Please make sure you have imported your podcast successfully in Alitu before setting up the 301 redirect.

Here are steps on how to set up the 301 redirect on some hosting platforms:
