Change your Websites Favorite Icon

How to change your website's icon for your internet browser.

Create a 16x16 pixel icon image called favicon.ico. This must be saved in the ico format. If you do not have photo editing/creating software that can create ico files then you will need to download one.
After you have created the file, upload it to your public_html directory.

Add the following code to the head of page that you want to change the icon for. In most cases this is your index.htm or index.html file.

< link REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://yourwebsite.com/favicon.ico" >

Replace yourwebsite.com with your domain name and remove the spaces between the "greater than" and "less than" symbols.

That's it!
