First you need one of the software applaications to build the graphic.

And after you made the icon, there are two options:
-Store it as 'favicon.ico' in the root of your domain
-use special html tag <link rel="shortcut icon" href="./favicon.icon">. That works even if you don't have access to / on your domain for whatever reason.
