    How to get a favicon?

    Hi, I have a site that I made using a sitebuilder, and I'm wondering how to get a favicon for my site. Is this done outside of the sitebuilder? I really don't know much about coding Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

    Did you google it?

    http://www.favicon.cc/

    You can simply go to their site, crop an image and then follow the instructions for adding the icon to your site.

    Thanks! but I already have an image. I just don't know how to get it there. It says put it in your web server dictionary, and that's the part I don't know how to do. I use a site builder so I don't know much about coding.

    Never used it. When you "create" a new page? I assume you may do that?? Where do you save those files?

    Where is your site hosted at? And do you have a cPanel or some type of administration tool through your server provider?

    I can create a new page, but I don't save those files, the site builder has a "publish to site" button that basically does everything for you. My site is at hostgator. I do have a cpanel

    Your cpanel will have an ftp client for you to upload files as well as probably a basic text editor to insert the code or link for your favicon.

    Perhaps someone with more experience with hostgators cpanel can give you steps to walk you through, or you could ask their customer support for help.
