1 - About

A Cookieless domain is a domain which does not set cookies intended to host static website.

3 - Management

3.1 - Creation

If your domain is www.example.org, you can host your static components on static.example.org.

However, if you've already set cookies on the top-level domain example.org as opposed to www.example.org, then all the requests to static.example.org will include those cookies.

In this case, you can buy a whole new domain, host your static components there, and keep this domain cookie-free.

Example:

  • Yahoo! uses yimg.com,
  • YouTube uses ytimg.com,
  • Amazon uses images-amazon.com and so on.
