Add a Custom Favicon

With our website maker you can have your own favicon. In this article, you will learn how to add a custom favicon (shortcut/bookmark icon) to your site.

What’s a Favicon?

A favicon, is a small image which acts as a “little flag” for a website. It’s usually the logo or other representative image. It’s shown in the favorite/bookmark list, or on the tabs of tabbed-enabled browsers, right next to the name of the site.

How to Create a Favicon

If you have a different format file (or with measures other than 16×16 px), you can use this Dynamic Drive tool, good for generating favicons. Just go to that link, select an image from your computer that you want to turn into a 16×16 .ico icon file, and click “Create Icon”.

Back in Your Site…

Once you’ve selected a favicon, hit Save.

And that’s it, you can always come back to this option and update it if it needs changes.
