How A Cookieless Domain Speeds up your website

Let’s take an example that I have done some weeks ago. It is a form.

This form does not have any graphics, just pure HTML. And of course some javascript (in this case jQuery).

What you normally do when you create a website is putting all files into folders. So your structure could look like this:

  • The website’s main folder including the index.html and maybe the other .html files (or .php, .asp, .aspx,…)
  • A folder for the graphics, let us say the folder is named images
  • A folder for the CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) files called css
  • A folder for the JavaScript files called js

All files that are needed for your website are located in those folders, they will be all loaded from this location.
