    Question status bar information

    Hi
    i don't know if this question belongs to this category, but i see some sites which load from different domains. example pointstatic in sitepoint, i.yimg in case of yahoo etc. what is it actually happening. can i load a site from multiple domains without changing the URL in the main site?

    The webpage itself only came from the URL you see in the address bar. You're seeing images and scripts on the page loading. There are a number of advantages for large sites having their static content, like images, on a separate server from the website -- the ability to use a lighter weight web server, maximizing page load time since simultaneous HTTP requests per domain are limited by the browser.
