You may not know what they are – but you see them every time you browse the internet. Look up at your open tabs on your browser right now, see that icon before the websites name? That’s a favicon!
Your brand on display
A favicon is an extension of your brand, whether it’s your company’s initials, your logo or some clever iconography. Your favicon will be visible on more than just the tab bar. Since May 2019, Google has been putting favicons on display in mobile search ranking pages, and whenever someone bookmarks your page the favicon will appear in their list of favourite and most visited websites.
Many websites have instantly recognisable favicons, like eBay’s coloured striped shopping bag to Amazons ‘a’ or Instagram’s camera icon. These are the online equivalent of the golden arches or the Nike tick. Simpler is better when it comes to favicons.
Adding a favicon to your website design
Typically, a favicon is square, 16x16 pixels and saved as an .ICO file. However, as always at DotGO, we have made things easy for you. Just upload a .png of your logo and our editor will automatically resize, convert and create a favicon ready for use on your website.
We also have a number of pre-made favicons ready to use, and all of our websites have a placeholder favicon so that your website design will always look professional.
It’s important to remember that people view the website on different devices and tend to have multiple tabs open at once. A favicon is a small but important way to make sure your website stands out amongst the crowd.

this is unimaginable excellent customer service. Every single person I had contact with in this company gave me the best experience from the first call to the end of production of my restaurants website. Painstaking manner of answering questions, they are never bored of you. They will answer promptly on a single call or call you back almost in instant. Pricing? DotGo can never be beaten, trust me. Affordable pricing for great job. Thanks to Jessy and everyone in the team who never were tired of my computer half literate.

Just amazing service My partner and I bought a static caravan in a beautiful part of Filey to enjoy with our daughter. Soon after the purchase we decided we should get some of the site fees back by renting it out. I had a “brainwave” to buy an off the peg website from a well known website supplier and build my own website ( how hard can it be?) ……. After 3 weeks of frustration I conceded defeat. That’s where Frankie and the team came in!! After making the enquiry I had a brief conversation with somebody who the booked me a call with Frankie. I explained what I was trying to achieve, she went through everything with me explaining the whole process A-Z she was very thorough, made it very easy for me to understand and kept me informed of every step way. The website was completed quicker than I expected and is just amazing!! I can run this myself now but I always know if I need advice they are only a phone call away. Frankie thank you so much for everything you have done.
professional and very helpful friendly team that had no problem customizing the site to suit my needs before launch
