What is a Favicon or Site Icon and how to use it ?
A favicon (universal term) or Site Icon (WordPress terminology) is short for favorites icon. It is an icon associated with a website to be displayed with bookmarks, in the URL bar, on tabs, and anywhere else where a website has to be identified visually.
A favicon is typically a graphic 16 x 16 pixels square and is saved as favicon.ico in the root directory of the server. You can use a favicon with any WordPress blog on a web server that allows access to the root directories.
