Do you want to use a fancy and unique font for your website or blog title? This seems to be impossible. As we know, when you view a web page, the font for that page are rendered from a font from your computer, if that one is not available, an alternative font will be used. So chances are that most users will probably not have that fancy font installed on their computer so no one will see your texts on pages in fancy font. This is why most web pages you see are in Aria, Times New Roman etc, simply because these fonts are widely available on most computers. However, now by using fonts hosted on a remote server or your own server as well as other additional scripts, you can easily use almost any font on your website.
1 CSS3 @font-face
CSS3′s @font-face attribute allows you to specify a font name and the link to that font in your css file and when a page is loaded, the font will be downloaded and installed by the browser to render texts in that font. This rule supports almost all mainstream browsers, but the problem is not all browsers support all font formats. So you will need to get different formats of that font so that it will be correctly displayed on all browsers. Luckily, there is a free tool called @font-face Kit Generator offered by FontSquirrel, which allows you to upload a font and then it will generate all needed formats for embedding purposes.
2 Google Web Fonts API
Google Web Fonts API allows you to easily use hundreds of web optimized fonts to your websites. The process is really easy. You just browse an pick a font you like, specify the style you will use as well as the character sets you want according to your web page languages, then add a short code to your website, which will be used to call font files. The last step is to add the font name to your CSS styles and Google will handle browse-specific issues and anything else. Now Google web fonts host 501 font families including Latin, Cyrillic, Greek, Khmer, Vietnamese etc. Google web fonts are all open source fonts that are legally allowed for web embedding. Another advantage of using Google web fonts API is all files are hosted on Google so you can save your bandwidth and decrease page load time.
