    It's called a favicon and you add it by adding the following code inside your <head> tags
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="" type="image/x-icon">
    For help on making a favicon, go to favicon.ico Generator and click import on the left hand side.

    according to harry or jaz, as long as it's stuck in the root of the folder the link in the html isn't needed.

    Might also want to think of an iphone icon too :)

    what did you call the file, should be favicon.ico and it should be in the root of your folders (in my case its the same as my index.html). It's also better to use a generator in my experience too

    You did upload the file yeah :)

    It'll be cached (or not, as the case may be). Instead of pointing to just favicon.ico link to favicon.ico?1234 (but don't rename the file).


    Do this but for a favicon:
