    How do I get an image to be in the address bar for my site? Like if you look at your address bar right now, there is a bwh image nest to the domain. How do I do that?

    I did google and found no answer.

    I think you are talking about Favicon. A favicon (short for favorites icon and pronounced fav-eye-kon) is a 16x16 image. A favicon generally has an .ico extension. .Gif extensions can also be used as a favicon but is not recommended unless you have an animated image.

    Now making a favicon is easier than ever. You may use your favorite picture editor (i.e. Adobe Photoshop) to create a 16x16 image.

    You can also use a image of any size and it will be automatically resized. Then, use the Favicon Generator to convert the image to a favicon with a .ico extension.

    Upload "favicon.ico" from your computer into root directory of your website.
    Paste the following code inside the <head> </head> section of your web pages.

    <link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

    Thats it! Now test the Icon in Web Browser.
