What is a Favicon?

Upload to your "public-html" directory.

"hawkhost.com" root seems to be without one :( ... here's a starter, if needed :)

http://www.daxxi.net/hh16/ ( <--- recommended; lower overheads )

http://www.daxxi.net/hh32/

(Try bookmarking both, then compare together. 32x32 doesn't appear so much better in my bookmarks sidebar lists but the full 32x32 icon image should be seen in the browser viewing area, here])

I just lassoed the head from the logo, hid the residual text and out-filled with transparency.

It might not win an award for looking like a hawk but it looks much better in bookmarks and tabs than the boring browser default icons like a sheet of paper with a curled-over corner. :P

Any alternative contributions? :)

Ha, it never occurred to me to even bother with a favicon - it's such a small thing in the grand scheme of it all.

We'll make sure to add a favicon to the new website (which will launch in early 2009).

Either way thanks for the post, I'm sure some other customers will find it useful / informative :).

Hey Daxx, those are AWESOME favicons for Hawk Host! Really nice. Cody, man, you guys should just grab that and use it right away anyway....why wait til the new site comes online? Takes two seconds to add the favicon and Daxx already did all the work ;) hehe

I'll contact Daxx to see if he minds, albeit a small change - it does make a difference.

:cool: I don't mind at all - I was hoping you would use it :)

It was lifted from your logo so I don't claim any copyright.

It was just an exercise using the free Artweaver software (and others) on a real image.

Thanks for your comments, Canadave :)
