So you might be wondering it would be nice to have one of those little graphics that so many sites have these days. These are called Favicon’s and the resulting file name will be favicon.ico.
Once the favicon.ico file is created it must be placed in your web sites web root directory. Basically the page that your
home page file is located. This can be done easily enough with your web hosting Control Panel file manager, or very
easily uploaded to your web site using your favorite FTP program. To verify that the file has been uploaded correctly
just point your browser to your domain name and then use /favicon.ico after the domain. So for an example we will use www.karthost.com and make sure the favicon.ico file is where we think we put it, we type www.karthost.com/favicon.ico
into our browser and you should see your little favicon image in your browsers window.
But where can you get one of these FAVICON’s made? There is a wonder favicon generator site I personally like to use.
