What is a favicon? A favicon is a small icon (16x16 px) in a browser address bar (near the url of your website). All uCoz websites have the following default favicon:



How to replace the default icon by a custom one?

http://faq.ucoz.com/faq/29-1#220


If this explanation is not enough then follow the steps below:

  • Download or create (by means of special programs) an icon - .ico file 16x16 px.

  • Name it favicon.ico.

  • Upload this icon to File Manager or via FTP to the root folder of your website (the first folder where you see the original favicon.ico). You don't need to delete the original icon, just upload a new one and the old one will be replaced automatically.

  • If you have done everything correctly, then you will be able to view a new icon at _http://your_site.ucoz.com/favicon.ico. Go to your website and refresh the page. If the icon hasn't changed, clear browser's cache or simply wait for some time.


IE may not display the icon. To solve this problem try to paste the following code between < head> and < /head>:

Code
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">                   
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

Mugen_Boy, I believe you've only pasted the code in the <head> section of one document. Hmm, if you open the template for Top part of website and paste the code it might work. It isn't officially correct syntax however it does generally work. smile

Mugen_Boy, as far as I can see it should work. smile If not then you will have to go through and paste the code into the <head> section of all of the templates that have it. wink

carloscompu, at the moment you have the default favicon on your website: http://cyberq.org/favicon.ico Have you uploaded a custom one?
