Host your own fonts with no monthly fees.
Pay once, use forever.
All webfont licenses on MyFonts don’t require a subscription. There’s no monthly fee to use your fonts. Once you purchase the license, it’s yours.
In addition, webfonts you buy from MyFonts are self hosted. You don’t have to rely on an external service to keep your fonts working.
The vast majority of webfonts on MyFonts are licensed with a Pay-Once model. This means that you’ll pay one flat fee for your webfont license and never have to think of it again. The only time you’d be required to pay more is if your site traffic exceeds the monthly number of pageviews your license is set for.
Webfonts by Monotype, Linotype, and Ascender have a different licensing model. These foundries have elected to set their licenses as a Pay-As-You-Go model. You can think of Pay-As-You-Go as a bucket of pageviews. This means that you’ll buy a certain quantity of pageviews, and once that quantity has been used up, you’ll have to come back to add more views.
Once you’ve purchased the license, you’ll be able to customize and download a webfont kit that you’ll host on your own servers. This keeps you in control of the speed and uptime of your font resources. Pageviews are valid for 4 years from the date of purchase.
