add icon to your website address

Sometime you will find a small icon appear on the left of your address bar side.
Like this.
It’s a favicon.ico.
We can add it into our index.html file at this section

<html>

<head>

<link REL=”SHORTCUT ICON” HREF=”http://www.davesite.com/webstation/html/favicon.ico”>

</html>

That is a simple html code in a simple html file. It is vary in every website, like mine. I use wordpress with suffusion template, so the index.html will be different. I have to edit it through wordpress in theme editor menu.
Then using cpanel, put the favicon.ico file into the root directory of your website where index.html is located. We may define it different but don’t forget to write it completely in href above.
There is an easy way to create favicon.ico.
Go to http://www.favicon.cc and draw it. Then download it. That’s simple.
