What is a Favicon? A favicon is that small icon (only 16x16) displayed next to the URL of your website in a browser’s address bar. Favicons are also proudly displayed next to your website’s name in a user’s list of open tabs and bookmarks. It makes it much easier for users to identify your website amongst all the others. With our nifty favicon generator, you can easily create a favicon for your website. All you need to do is upload your image or select an image from our free favicon gallery. The tool can convert any JPEG, GIF, or PNG to an ICO file, which is supported by all web browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari.
3 Steps to Setting Up Your Favicon 1. After you drag and drop your image (or select from our free image gallery), upload the generated file (“filename.ico”) to your website. To verify it is there, type http://websitename.com/favicon.ico into your browser. 2. Insert the HTML code for the favicon in the HEAD of your page, and at the very least, the main index page of your website. 3. And you’re done! Please keep in mind your favicon may not appear right after you completed the above two steps.
