Add Favicon

Our Business and Business Plus plans for Website Builder version 7 let you create a favicon for your website. A favicon (short for favorites icon) helps your Website stand out amid the competition by displaying a small image in the web browser's page tab when visitors view your Website. Your favicon will also appear in their browser's list of favorite or bookmarked pages.
Favicons appear in the browser tab and in bookmarks.

  1. Log in to your Website Builder account.
  2. Click Edit Website.
  3. In the top right corner of your screen, click the three-bar icon (Manage Website) and select Site Settings in the dropdown menu. Click the three-bar icon (Manage Settings) to manage your Website settings
  4. Click the Site Features tab and in the Favicon section, click Add Image. (For more information on which browsers support favicons, see Website Builder 7 Favicon Supported Browsers.)
    Click Add Image in Favicon section of Website Features tab
  5. The Choose Photos window lets you choose from a variety of image sources. Click any of the left-hand buttons to navigate to a photo. Or click Browse to use a photo stored on your computer, which you can then upload.
    Click Insert to add the favicon
  6. The Website Builder favicon feature automatically generates a properly sized square image and drops it into the correct folder on your Website. Just remember to use an image with a filename that ends with .gif, .jpg, .jpeg or .png. It also helps to use a visually simple image that will remain legible even when tiny.

  7. After choosing a suitable image, click Insert.
  8. When the Site Features tab reappears, the favicon of your image appears in the Favicon section. Click OK to close the tab.
    Click OK
  9. Click Publish and the favicon will be added to your Website.
