The favicon.ico file is of the “ico” type and typically contains two images. The first is a 16×16 pixel image and the second is 32×32.
To make your own favaicon.ico and relate it to your website you just need to go through these three simple steps:
- Produce the 16×16 and the 32×32 images/logos of your site, save them as png images
- Use the program png2ico to make the favicon.ico file. The command to use is : png2ico favicon.ico weblogo32.png weblogo6.png
- Upload the favicon.ico file to your website’s root. It will be available to all the pages that are under the root.
