I am running this site: www.thetechnofreaks.com on Wordpress. Recently I came through a plugin that claims to increase the page load efficiency of my site. the plugin details can be found here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/installation/
Now the plugin mentions a self-hosted method for CDN which is known as pipelining. It states:
If you do not have a CDN provider, you can still improve your site's performance using the "Self-hosted" method. On your own server, create a subdomain and matching DNS Zone record; e.g. static.domain.com and configure FTP options on the "Content Delivery Network" tab accordingly. Be sure to FTP upload the appropriate files, using the available upload buttons.
Now I have created a static.thetechnofreaks.com sub-domain but I don't know how to enter matching DNS Zone record and configure FTP options.
Please guide me in this regard. I went to my cPanel -> Simple DNS Zone Editor. It contains:
Add an A Record
Add a CNAME Record
What am I supposed to enter in this??
