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">

DRam604, You don’t need to delete the original icon, just upload a new one and the old one will be replaced automatically. Do not forget to name the new one favicon.ico.

Hi, can anyone see the icon successfully?

When you answer questions, could you please make sure you have checked it? Maybe it's the bugs/problems of your system. If you don't look into the matter seriously, the problem won't be solved and we are wasting our time by posting here.
