How to create a Favicon


A favicon (short for 'favorites icon'), also known as a website icon, page icon or urlicon, is an icon associated with a particular website or webpage. Browsers that support them may display them in the browser's URL bar, next to the site's name in lists of bookmarks, and next to the page's title in a tabbed document interface.

A favicon can add to a websites “look and feel”, and could give the site character, and a more professional appearance. The major advantage however of the favicon is that if someone has a lot of links in their favorites, your site is more likely to stand out with the favicon bookmark: this mean an increase in brand awareness.

You can create the icon with free icon editor software: Icon Forge or favicon. Save your icon as “favicon.ico” and upload it to your root web directory. That’s the same place as your homepage is located.

Are you asking why I do not have a favicon? I do not have time to create one, sorry...
