Websites + Marketing Help

Add a favicon to my website

A favicon (short for favorites icon) helps your site stand out from the competition by displaying a small image in your site's browser tab. It'll also appear in places like the favorites bar and bookmarks list.

You can add a favicon, without the hassle of coding, using the Websites + Marketing site builder.

Upload a square .PNG, .ICO, .JPG or .JPEG image file. We recommended the dimensions of 180px by 180px for your favicon to appear crisp.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Scroll to Websites + Marketing and select Manage next to your site.
  3. Select Edit Site.
  4. In the Settings menu, select Favicon.
  5. In the Favicon panel, select Upload and navigate to the image you want to use.
    Click Upload
    Note: Keep the design of your favicon simple — you don't want people squinting.
  6. Click Done when you're finished, and when you're ready, select Publish Site/Publish.
  7. Select Visit Site to see the site's favicon in your web browser's tab or navigation bar.
