Browsers will only make a limited number of HTTP connections to a 
specific host.  By using multiple hostnames, you increase the number of 
concurrent connections a browser will make.  It is also useful to 
seperate static content from dynamic content because dynamic content 
servers typically are heavy weight (Apache w/mod_perl or mod_php) 
compared to static content servers (lighttpd, nginx, etc).
