Verifying Feed Requests

You can verify Feedbin’s HTTP requests using reverse DNS.

For example you might see a request like this in your logs:

206.189.164.12 "Feedbin feed-id:1234 - 21 subscribers"

  1. Run a reverse DNS lookup on the IP address from your logs:
     host 206.189.164.12
     12.164.189.206.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer 12-164-189-206.bot.feedbin.com.
    
  2. Verify that the domain name is from *.bot.feedbin.com.
  3. Run a forward DNS lookup on the domain name to verify that it’s the same IP address from your logs:
     host 12-164-189-206.bot.feedbin.com
     12-164-189-206.bot.feedbin.com has address 206.189.164.12
