How to add a favicon to your website

Step I: Do you have something to create an ICO file? If not, do you have Adobe photoshop? If you don’t have either of them, search to get an .ico file creator. If you have adobe photoshop, you might want to download a plugin to let Adobe save in .ico format.

Here is what you need.

Next, create the favicon, save it as favicon.ico, in .ico format and upload in the root directory of your server.

Step II: Once done, add the following somewhere in the head section. Of course you will change creationinternetsite.com with your own domain name.
