We're so happy to have you here!  Of course, we want to make sure that your analytics reach you, especially now that you've moved over. To do this, we need to make sure that Spotify knows that we are your host now. 

Don't worry, this is an incredibly simple process. But the first thing you want to do is make sure you have a 301 redirect in place with your old host. 

Redirect in place? Alright let's keep going! 

Now's the time to log into your Spotify for Podcasters account. If you don't have one, then go ahead and create one so you can claim your feed. Your Spotify for Podcasters account is key to getting this swapped over promptly. 

Once you're logged into your Spotify for Podcaster's account, you'll see your show listed. Click on your show, then hit the "Details" tab so you can see where Spotify is currently grabbing your pod from:  

Once there, you'll want to hit "Update" under your podcast settings:

Next you'll just copy and paste the link for your new RSS feed directly in. Spotify will verify it immediately so you can keep moving forward:

You're almost there!

Make sure you select "Acast" as your hosting provider before saving these changes!

Finally, just confirm that everything looks great and send the change on through to Spotify... then you are all set!

If you do not recognize the email address they display, this could be due to the email mask which can be easily updated.

(Note: For Acast Flex users, please use your RSS feed but make sure the hosting provider is updated in the Spotify dashboard to reflect Acast)
