GTMetrix is saying I need to use cookieless domains

Hi all,

I was hoping someone might be able to point me in the direction with an issue I’m having.
GTMetrix is saying I need to use cookieless domains, but it’s my understanding that this shouldn’t be necessary with Cloudfare. I’d really appreciate some advice on this.

Here’s the link to the report - the YSlow tab has this information.

Many thanks in advance.

Yes, you should just ignore the “cookie-free domains” requirement. Cloudflare add a security cookie _cfduid that is used to to override any security restrictions based on the IP address the visitor is coming from.

By default, Cloudflare already cache static content, so there are no need for cookie-free domain. You can see details about Cloudflare’s caching here:
