How to add a favicon to a webpage

I’ve been trying to add a favicon to this web page but it isn’t going. All the favicon generators I see recommend uploading it from a file but can’t I use the URL of another image rather than putting it in a file? Another thing. How can I put it in a file. The pic of the favicon says favicon.ico doesn’t support this format. I don’t understand. Pls, any help? Will really appreciate

I think you should google it.

I’ve googled it but I haven’t seen an answer to my question


To add a favicon, you need to include a favicon.ico image file in the root directory of your page. There are a few resources available online for converting your desired image into the .ico file format.
