Cookies and terms
Please note that these items (as posted on this page) are subject to review, revision and/or addition at any time without prior notice and that the use of this site implies acceptance of these terms and policies.
After visiting this site you might notice that a cookie named 'X-mapping' has been placed on your computer. This is placed by my website host and they have provided me with this description of it:
The X-mapping cookie is actually set by our load balancer.
When a connection is made to a site hosted with us, the request comes in to the load balancer, which then opens a connection through one of six gateway servers, and sets a cookie containing which server the connection was made through.
Any subsequent http requests are then made through this connection, speeding up the http request, as an existing connection is being used, rather than the load balancer having to request and initiate a new connection for each http request.
This makes the site load faster and is more efficient on process load.
So now you know!
