Generally, the tiny icon that appears in your browser tab just before your “Page title” is Favicon. Here in this article, we’ll discuss “How anyone can easily customize or change the Magento Favicon”. As we all know, Magento is an open source platform for eCommerce clients. Next, each and every company have their own “Logo”. Hence, it also should be unique and represents the type of interest of the specific company. Just like that the Magento Favicon is a unique way to define your company to online clients. The Magento Favicon literally informs your online visitor in the very beginning. First about the contents of the website. Also the type of business it’s doing in Internet.
There are several ways to change or edit your Magento Favicon. Here is the list:
First you can simply login to your cPanel and upload the new Favicon. Secondly by connecting to the FTP hosting server we can also upload the Favicon. But both of these processes need a good hosting provider. Our hosting supports both FTP connections using our FTP port or server. Eventually the connection is as fast as it’s secure for transferring Data smoothly. Also we’re providing hosting with 24×7 tech support in affordable price. The Basic plan costs $9.99 per month.
