The reason you see plans to drill the holes in the door is that's the least likely to run into problems with hitting any critical parts (ie. electric or refrigerant lines). Especially if it's an older fridge, ie. not a side by side.

Trouble with that is, when you open the door, the hoses get in the way when changing a keg. Tap on the side is also easier to put a drip pan under the spigot than it is in front. I like drilling holes in the side if you can be sure you won't hit anything critical. If you are unsure, drill a tiny hole first through just the outer skin of the fridge, and with fridge unplugged, probe into the insulation behind the hole with a stiff wire like a coat hanger to be sure you aren't going to be hitting anything critical.
Good luck, and enjoy the brews.
