Let me provide you with some rock solid reasons why you need to let Google host your files.
Google’s CDN Is Faster Than Your HostNo matter how good your web hosting package is, it just cannot beat Google’s CDN (Content Distribution Network). Google runs many servers and has servers in many countries which mirror data across the globe. When downloading static data from Google, the underlying architecture automatically detects the geographically closest server and download the files from there. This simple action drastically reduces the time needed for your files to download. Using a CDN is recommended by Yahoo! Exceptional Performance Rules.
Increases Number Of Parallel DownloadsAccording to the HTLM 1.1 specification, which most modern browsers obey, only two parallel downloads can be done from a single hostname. Therefore if you use Google for your hosting, you maximize your parallel download performance, since you will have another hostname (google.com) serving files.
Save BandwidthFinally, you also get to save some of your bandwidth, thus saving you money. If you are on a budget hosting plan, then this might be helpful in cutting down costs and relieving your server of stress.
