I have just started a Gravatar acct. when I attempted to login using a secure socket to www.gravatar.com I was prompted with a warning that it was a different site, not the one I was after. I am using Chrome, so I do take it with a grain of salt, but the URL that I was told it actually was is an odd one: gpl.wac.edgecastcdn.net. Is this normal?


It should be safe:

I believe gpl.wac.edgecastcdn.net is used for Gravatar content serving - the cdn is 'content delivery network'.

edgecastcdn.net resolves to a 404 and SiteAdvisor returns green (We tested this site and didn't find any significant problems.)

There are no online 'flags' or comments relating to Gravatar being unsafe.
