A Favicon is the small icon that is next to your website name on browser tabs, and is helpful in quickly identifying your site and also to improve (in a small way, like its size) your branding.
Creating a favicon can be done really easily. Simply get a picture that you want as a favicon (ideally fairly large, square and simple design) and go to Favicon.cc.
Click Import Image and select your image and upload it. The program will shrink your image down to 16×16 pixels so expect some changes!
If you are satisfied with what it looks like (look below to the preview or in your own tab for a preview) then click Download favicon. And save it to your computer.
If your not satisfied, you can either edit it a bit in the browser or try and edit it in your own art package or even try a different image.
Once you have the favicon downloaded, you will need to upload it to your website, it goes in your public_hmtl folder. If there is already a favicon there, simply overwrite it or rename the old file.

Now you will have a great looking favicon
