Definition — What is Cookie-Free Domain? 


A Cookie-Free Domain is a very simple concept. Exactly referring to a domain that does not send commands to a user's browser to store cookies from a website. In general, cookies are used for tracking, cart item, session login, etc. When a user requests a web page URL (domain) then it sends back to the requested user data along with some response headers. Cookie-free domains are intended to serve static files like images, CSS files, scripts, and others.
