    hello this is for Frederick .... can you please tell me the trade off of using 7 different cnames for my cdn and w3tc?

    i'm seeing my queries per month go up which is costing me money for dns services ...... is that mostly because i'm using 7 different cnames for your plugins cdn? if so how big of a difference does it make to have 7 versus 2 or 3 what's the difference performance / cost wise?

    also why are you using a different domain name for your cdn? should i be?

    Depends on your site. Multiple CNAMEs improve pipelining performance in the browser. The current settings are just a test, they will change periodically.
