What are web fonts?

Web fonts are font files hosted on the internet for embedding in websites. Using web fonts in your designs allows you to create beautiful websites or apps without being limited by the fonts available locally on your audience's devices.

A web font can be used either by including it with a website or application and linking to it locally, or by linking straight to a copy of the file hosted on a CDN, such as fontsta.sh.

There are other font hosting services available, and they may be more suitable for some applications. fontsta.sh prides itself in not collecting any analytics on users and only retaining minimal logs in the name of privacy. The font collection grows as new fonts are found or submitted, and we hope to make picking a font quick and painless - like it should be.
