Subdomains, Subpages, and Your Web Font License

Our web font license extends to all facets of your domain. This includes subdomains like “” and subpages like “” The crucial factor to keep in mind is your average monthly visitors. Our standard license offers web font licenses across five tiers: 50K, 100K, 1M, 10M, and “unlimited.” Make sure your chosen tier aligns with your total average monthly visitors. Please note, some font foundries define their own pricing tiers, which can be found on the cart page before checkout, or in the manage license area of your account.

CDN Modifications: Akamai Rewrite, AWS Cloudfront and Beyond

Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) like Akamai Rewrite or Amazon Cloudfront can modify your pages and file source locations, raising questions about the scope of your web font license. CDNs distribute your content across multiple geographical locations to improve site performance and reliability. They often use multiple servers or web addresses, but the content remains the same.

Our web font license covers pages modified by a CDN, provided there’s no significant difference in the content. This means you can use CDNs to load balance your content across different regions, servers, or languages without worrying about violating the license terms. However, you must account for the total monthly page views for both the original URL and the CDN when selecting your license tier.
