Jump to navigation. Fonts are often a mystery to many computer users. For example, have you designed a cool flyer and, when you take the file somewhere for printing, find all the titles rendered in Arial because the printer doesn't have the fancy font you used in your design?
Self-Hosting assets versus Third-Party hosting
The next most dreadful thing you can face after suffering downtime is your website being too slooooooooow. What is average server response time? The HRank chart shows that most hosting providers have speeds up to ms, but anything more than ms is slow. Google Analytics allows you to check response time for 1 previous day or for a certain period of time. You can use one of the third-party services, such as site24x7. You can also check the response time of your website via the Terminal on your MacBook more exactly how to do it. If you check Ping through Terminal, it will show the response time between your computer your location and the web server of your site. To achieve the shortest possible response time, geographically, the server and the target audience of the website should be as close as possible to each other. HRank service has a unique ability to show the response time of a hosting provider the average of all provider servers and the response time of a specific server in history. It allows you to evaluate the performance of the server provider in the past and see whether it was fast or not.

But what sets Bluehost apart from the pack? Utah-based Bluehost came onto the scene in Bluehost currently powers more than two million websites worldwide, primarily out of its data center in Utah. We said Bluehost was dependable, and we meant it: Bluehost has a great uptime guarantee of
This page was originally created on Jan and last edited on Feb In the last few weeks, because of a combination of various things at work, and in side-projects, I've been learning a lot about web fonts and also a lot more about Google Fonts specifically. Through that I've come up with a more nuanced answer to the question, that in the past I thought was easy: should you self-host Google Fonts? Now, to be totally up front, I'll admit that fonts are not my strong point. I'm much more practical than design-y look at this website for evidence of that! Sure they look a bit nicer, and can understand they make a message seem more on-brand, but for the main body of text at least they seem more of a nice to have - I've never read an article more or less or treated the contents any differently because it had a pretty font. However, I've also been acutely aware of the performance implications of them so maybe that's clouded my view of them. Still, many feel differently, and fonts are here, whether I appreciate them or not, and many developers aren't given a choice whether to use them or not. So let's look at what we can do to minimise the performance impact, but also give the designers what they want - win win!
