InMotion favicon sampleWhen you visit a website, there is an image in the browser tab that displays for each site (See image to the right). This is called a "favicon." The favicon image is in the .ico file format. You can have other file formats; however, this article will only explain how to use the .ico format. The .ico format is universally accepted in all browsers. To create your own favicon, you can use our Favicon Generator In this article, you'll learn how to add the favicon to your site.

You will want to name your favicon image "favicon.ico". Also, when creating a favicon, you will want to make sure your image is square and not rectangle.

Once you get your favicon generated, you can upload it to your server and add code to your site to display your own image in the browser tab. Below are the steps to get your own favicon working on our server.

Steps to add a favicon to your site

  1. Login into your cPanel.
  2. Go to the File Manager, Select your directory for your site (In this case the main domain public_html location) and Click Go.
  3. Upload the favicon to your server.
  4. Where the code goes in the head sectionEdit the source code that contains the code of your site. The head section code should look similar to the snapshot to the right.
  5. Placement of favicon linkAdd the following line of code below the </code>tag. <p><code style="overflow: scroll;"><link rel='shortcut icon' href='favicon.ico' type='image/x-icon' /></code></p> <p>Save the file and preview your site in your browser. You should see the favicon show in your browser.</p> <br style="clear: both;" /> <p class="alert"> If you do not see your favicon load in your browser, you may need to <a target="_blank" title="Click here for more info" href="/support/website/how-to/clear-browser-cache">Clear your browser cache</a>.</p> </li> </ol> </div> <a name='like_this_article'></a> <div style='position:relative;margin:25px 0px;'> <div style='border-top:1px solid #ccc;border-bottom:1px solid #ccc; height:5px;'></div> <div style='background:#f9f9f9;margin-top:-14px;display:inline-block;margin-left:200px;padding:0px 0px 0px 25px;'> <div style='display:inline-block;'> <a href='https://twitter.com/share' class='twitter-share-button' data-via='inmotionhosting'>Tweet</a> <script>!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src='//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js';fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,'script','twitter-wjs');</script> </div> <div style='display:inline-block;'> <iframe src='//www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/how-to/how-to-create-a-favicon-for-your-website&send=false&layout=button_count&width=100&show_faces=false&font=verdana&colorscheme=light&action=like&height=21&appId=209145459223160' scrolling='no' frameborder='0' style='border:none; overflow:hidden; width:100px; height:21px;' allowTransparency='true'></iframe> </div> <div style='display:inline-block;'> <div class='g-plusone' data-size='medium' data-href='http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/how-to/how-to-create-a-favicon-for-your-website'></div> <script type='text/javascript'> (function() { var po = document.createElement('script'); po.type = 'text/javascript'; po.async = true; po.src = 'https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js'; var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s); })(); </script> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div name='sc_right' id='sc_right'> <div class="moduletable" style='display:none;' name='latest_news' id='latest_news'> <h3>News / Announcements</h3> <div name='latest_news_items' id='latest_news_items'> </div> </div> <div class="moduletable"> <div class="custom" > <h3> Support Center Login </h3> Our Login page has moved, Click the button below to be taken to the login page. <br> <br> <form action="http://InMotionHosting.com/support/user-login"> <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary" value="Go to login page"> Log In </button> </form></div> </div> <div class="moduletable"> <h3>Social Media Login</h3> <noindex> <div id="slogin-buttons" class="slogin-buttons "> <a rel="nofollow" title="Facebook" href="/support/component/slogin/provider/facebook/auth"><span class="facebookslogin"> </span></a> <a rel="nofollow" title="Google" href="/support/component/slogin/provider/google/auth"><span class="googleslogin"> </span></a> </div> <div class="slogin-clear"></div> </noindex> <div style="text-align: right; visibility: hidden; "><a style="text-decoration:none; color: #c0c0c0; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 5pt;" target="_blank" href="http://joomline.org/extensions/component-for-joomla/slogin.html">Social Login Joomla</a></div> </div> <div class="moduletable"> <h3>Related Questions</h3> <div>Here are a few questions related to this article that our customers have asked:</div> <div style='margin:10px 0px; color:#aaa;'>Ooops!

The only way to display the favicon is to upload it directly in the public_html folder instead of uploading it in let's say "public_html/domain_B".
