In this article, we explain what a favicon is, why you should have one for your website, and how you can upload your own in Sitejet.

Favicon is short for "favorite icon", and it's the little icon or logo next to the title of a website in your browser tabs, bookmarks, and favorites. Its purpose is to help people find their saved favorite pages faster. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Previously, the favicon could also be found next to URLs in your browser, but now that encryption has become more widespread, a padlock icon is usually displayed there instead.
Favicons are always square and can have pixel dimensions of 16x16, 32x32, or 64x64.
There are many favicon generators available on the web, and you can use these to create a favicon from your logo with just a few clicks.
