The new PDF24 PDF converter system is online
The new Document To PDF service is online, replaced with the old one, and is now used for all conversions of documents to PDF files.
In the new system, a lot has happened. The new system is not only more stable, faster and safer, but has also been improved to optimize the quality of the resulting PDF files. This mainly concerns the conversion of HTML to PDF. We, now, already have in use the system for many years, we have continuously improved the system and we have planed to use and improve it over the next years.
Currently, the system converts many thousands of documents per day and is scalable to convert a lot of more documents.
A focus was also on SPAM aspects when the converted document is to send to an email address. In older versions we have tried to make it very difficult for SPAMMERS and in this version we have gone a step further. When an email address is used the first time it must be activated by the recipient and only if an email address is activated the conversion results will be sent to that address. If an e-mail address is already activated, converted documents will be sent directly. This change in the system is, in our opinion, the right way to fight against SPAMMERS.
Interfaces of the service
The new system has a lot of interfaces to access the service.
A Document To PDF Online Form to convert documents, text / html or web page via an URL to a PDF file. Simply select a document, type in text or HTML or specify a URL and the service creates a PDF file from it.
An Email PDF Converter to convert documents attached to emails to PDF files and to send them back to the sender. Very useful tool.

A little tip for SEO interested folks
If you convert a HTML page into a PDF file, then all links will be available in the PDF file and they link back to your page. This is very useful to get more backlinks to your page because if someone creates a PDF file from your page and the PDF file is stored publicly in the internet then Google will see the links. Or if someone sends the file to his friends and someone clicks on a link then this persons will be redirected to your page. Very nice thing.
