Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Usually when I download a Ubuntu ISO from Ubuntu.com, I got it from *.Ubuntu.com path, a while ago; when I started the 14.04 Download, I got redirected to http://d3g7pb956c5s5x.cloudfront.net/ubuntu-14.04-desktop-amd64.iso

Is there any change in Ubuntu Back-ends? or this just temporarily for the Download spike on 14.04 release ?

Note : I use Getright as a download manager and it couldn't find any other Mirror having 14.04 new ISO (not even on Ubuntu.com! )

During releases Ubuntu.com uses a CDN to offload the load on the network of severs.

For most people it's transparent. As with all downloads make sure you check the MD5sum to ensure the download completed without errors:
