Is it possible to run ENTIRE site (not just images, etc) via CDN?

Pat & Lennie,

Thanks! It's great to know there are still options to be explored. ;-)

Quote:If your CDN uses anycast and is willing to let you use an IP address instead of a CNAME then you can configure your domain as an A record that points to their anycast address directly and give it as long of a TTL as you feel comfortable with.

Let's assume they would let me use an IP instead of a CNAME. I'm not sure how, if at all, this would work in my configuration.

- Currently my A record at DNS Made Easy points to my dedicated IP at my hosting company
- www CNAME is pointed to wac.xxxx.edgecastcdn.net.
- Edgecast pulls from laptopgpsworld.com
- People visit the URL of www. laptopgpsworld. com

If I would use Edgecast's IP as my A record, what would I point the CDN to pull content from?

- A record: IP for laptopgpsworld.com
- Pull content from the same laptopgpsworld.com? Would that at all work?
