cookies get RED X

RE: cookies get RED X
Most don't know, but http://www.example.com is basically a subdomain of the example.com. DNS goes from right to left going from the Top Level Domain (TLD, like .com, .net) to the domain (example) to subdomains (sub.example.com, http://www.example.com), and each level being delimited by a period (.). When setting a cookie in your site software, you can choose to set the cookie to .example.com, which sets the cookie for the domain example.com and all subdomains like http://www.example.com. If you set your CDN up with cnames to be a subdomain (cdn1.example.com), then the browser will send the cookie for the cdn as well. Normally this is done so that the cookie can be accessed by both www and non-www versions of the site.
