    Hello

    I have 2 hosting accs. I don't use the second one.

    Is is a good idea to host some stuff on the second one like style.css, logo, images etc so basically the hosting number 2 acts as a CDN?

    What do you think

    Thanks

    If the acc are on shared hosting is not gonna help u much but the opposite. If the hosting acc are on dedis than go for it.

    Most of the shared hosting accounts don't allow you to use the account for file storage and what you're going to do can be considered file storage IMO.
    You can host the images on imgur and minify the css and js files. If you're using wordpress wp super cache with the right settings helps a lot

    What kind of hosting? SSD/HDD? Shared/VPS/Dedicated?

    Even though you can offload the static content to another account, A hosting account can't act as a CDN. The goal of a CDN is to serve content to end-users with high availability and high performance. A content delivery network or content distribution network (CDN) is a large distributed system of servers deployed in multiple data centers across the Internet. Even if your other hosting account serves the static content from the RAM, it won't be any faster than a cheap CDN. Try Cloudflare, they've faster DNS response times as well as several POP's around the world.

    Far as BH SEO is concerned if you're hosting legit sites then it doesn't really matter. But if you're trying not to set footprints and these CDN's aren't public, then you're basically setting a big arrow between your sites.
