Free Bootstrap hosting on MaxCDN's Content Delivery Network
Sorry if this isn't the right place for this, but why does MaxCDN use different domains for all of its different open source CDNs such as jQuery, Bootstrap, twemoji, and the osscdn?
@sgoblin I'll see if I can get someone from Max to answer this better, but I can speak for BootstrapCDN. They sponsor the project and are involved for sure. But consider it a standalone and open source. I believe the same is true for the other projects you mentioned. As they're all independent. They run on different domains.
@jdorfman Not sure if you'd like to provide additional information or correct anything there.
Probably a better way to phrase my question is: shouldn't MaxCDN just use something like, say, osscdn.maxcdn.com for reducing the number of DNS requests (domain sharding is not necessary for small websites with a small number of files)?
@sgoblin you bring up a good point. The reason is that different projects require different access control for security reasons. For instance jQuery and Twemoji need their own account because they only want people from their organization accessing SSL & API credentials as well as reporting. Separate account/zones on our platform can't share CNAMES making it impossible to unify under one hostname. Let me know if you need any other clarification.
