    That's HostGator's favicon. When you purchase your hosting from HostGator and set up your website, it's there by default.

    You can change this by uploading a new favicon and clearing your cache right after.
    You can change it in WordPress by goign to "Appearance", then "Editor", then "Header.php". Upload a favicon to your website, change the green text to the location of your favicon, and add this code after the <head> tag :
    HTML:
    <link rel=“shortcut icon” href=“/favicon.png” type=“image/x-icon”> <link rel=“icon” href=“/favicon.png” type=“image/x-icon”>
    You can also just use a plugin if that's easier for you. https://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-favicon/
