Frequently Asked Questions
RSS API simplifies the process of parsing and checking RSS feeds. It allows you to get notified via webhook when new feed items are published, without requiring you to handle and maintain your own feed parsing and polling infrastructure.
Feed subscriptions generally work like this: you tell us with feeds you want to subscribe to (via API) and we will periodically check each feed and monitor if any new items get added. If so, we will send a webhook to a URL of your choice so you can process the data and use it in your application.
Learn more about this in the RSS API Documentation.
Our servers and our company are both located in the European Union, in Germany.
Some feeds may return an error when you try to parse (or subscripe to them) via RSS API. This could be the case when the webserver hosting the feed is blocking automated traffic. If you have control over the target server, you may whitelist our IP-Addresses to ensure that RSS API can access all of your feeds. You can find an up-to-date list of our IP-Space here. Please contact us for further help/troubleshooting.
