    Add logo to browser

    Is there a way to have a logo pop up for my website instead of just an initial? I'd like my website to show up like apple or google do in this photo.safari logo example.png

    The screenshot has not been approved by moderators at this time but it sounds like you are describing a "favicon".

     

    The most simple method is to create a standard icon file, name it 'favicon.ico' and upload to the root directory.  Almost all modern browsers would automatically recognize it if accessible at yourdomain.com/favicon.ico

     

    In addition to that you can create slightly higher resolution .png or .gif as well as alternate versions for mobile devices using link tags in the head of the html documents.  Here are a couple articles on the subject:

    Is there a way to do that with a godaddy/gocentral site? I tried adding it but it's still not working.

    In GoCentral you can add a favicon under the Site Settings.
