Until 2020-03-25 (T246507: Setup DNS to direct techblog.wikimedia.org to new Wordpress VIP hosting), the URL https://techblog.wikimedia.org/ was a CNAME to a server in the Wikimedia internal server farm. On that server Apache was returning 301 Moved Permanently responses directing the visiting browser to https://blog.wikimedia.org/c/technology (T181878: techblog.wikimedia.org should redirect to blog.wikimedia.org/c/technology).
We now have DNS for https://techblog.wikimedia.org/ setup as a CNAME to techblog-wikimedia-org.go-vip.net. On that server we are running a new WordPress site. This works great if your local browser has not cached the prior 301 redirect. However modern browsers try to remember 301 redirects in their local cache to reduce back and forth trips to the remote servers. This means that some people will still be sent to the old https://blog.wikimedia.org/c/technology location rather than to the new blog, if they are following a link that is exactly the same as one that they followed when last visiting a path under techblog.wikimedia.org.
