Default Favicon

Here is a basic description on adding a favicon.
Favicon is short for favourite icon, they are the little picture or design next to the address in the address bar. They are also stored in your favourites list next to the name of the site so finding sites is easier.
Create or copy your image and reduce the size to 16x16
Save as favicon.ico Some programs do not recognise this file format so save as png and convert your file to ico by visiting sites like this
Upload the generated file ("favicon.ico") to your site. It must be stored in the same directory as the web page it is associated with. Verify it's there by typing http://???.com/favicon.ico in the browser's location, where "???.com" is your site's address.
Paste this code into the head tag of your web pages
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
