I have not received any money for this blog post. Everything I write is based on my own experiences!
If you build a web page, the font you choose is one of the most important components to bind your visitors.
You can either use Google Fonts, where free fonts are available, or you can use a premium font. Premium means fonts that are not free. You need to buy them.
This is where the service provider fonts.com comes into play. fonts.com gives you the opportunity to get your fonts for free, as long as you do not have more than 25,000 views a month.
All you have to do is register on fonts.com, create your web font project and copy the given code into your template.
25,000 views …
With a monthly number of up to 25,000 page views, you have free access to our webfont service.Linotype – Web Fonts Service
For those of you who are not familiar with visitor numbers, it may seem like a small number, but you should know that under normal circumstances you should not expect so many visitors.
When a website is built, you can count on a maximum of 1,000 visitors per month, and if you actively promote the site and put some money in it, with 5,000 visitors.
The above 25,000 views apply only to already reasonably successful websites. If available, you could first check the Analytics numbers.
Of course, we also think about the privacy of the customers and the visitors, which plays a big role in our time.
You can not download the fonts at fonts.com and host them locally. The loading of the fonts at fonts.com run as follows:
- You create a project
- You add fonts to this project
- You get a script that you embed on your website
- This script loads the necessary fonts from the fonts.com servers
The last point raises the question of what the server is saving everything in the query? Theoretically, the location of the user, his operating system, and even the screen resolution. Everything could be saved. Fonts.com says:
You can read more details in the link. We note that no personal information is stored by Fonts.com but only the number of views is updated.
Linotype and Monotype?
Maybe you’ve noticed that I’ve quoted for the service provided by Fonts.com, the texts by Linotype and Monotype. So:
I will definitely recommend this provider in any project where fonts can be used by them, because I think that this service is a great opportunity to embed premium fonts for free.
We have been using this provider for over five years and never had any problems.
