Nominet offers news feeds so that you can be informed when we have updated areas of the web site. A newsfeed is simply a link to a source of constantly updating content or data. You can add any of our news feeds to an aggregator, which is a program that handles news feeds from multiple sites.
- Latest News
- Press Releases
- System Announcements (via our Registrar Resources site)
- DRS Cases
- Job Opportunities
- Nominet blog
To add a news feed, simply subscribe using one of the methods listed below.
How do I use them?
We offer news feeds in a variety of standards so that we are compatible with as many news readers as possible. If you are not sure which one to add, we would suggest trying the RSS 2.0 feed first, as the majority of modern aggregators are compatible with this version.
How do I get one?
If you use current versions of Firefox, Internet Explorer or Opera, clicking on a link to an RSS feed will show you a set of options, either to subscribe to the feed within the browser, or to add the feed to one of several online news readers.
Please note however, that in some older versions of IE, Firefox, and Safari, clicking on an RSS link will result in the browser simply displaying some code - this is the XML code that a "newsfeed reader" interprets. In any of these circumstances you can instead copy the link to the relevant news feed, and paste it into a subscribe or add subscription box in your feed reader.
List of news aggregators
This is by no means an exhaustive list, the Wikipedia article comparing aggregators lists several others.
