    Unhappy My Favicon won't jump to my new URL



    I've been at this for 24 hrs
    I created a website with a favicon it works brilliantly
    My website is www.homepage.ntlworld.com/index.html
    Then I purchased a domain name www.mysite.co.uk butmy favicon dosn't show up. How do I redirect the favicon to my new domain
    I've tried all sorts of html in the head of the document index.html
    I'm struggling a bit on this one!!!
    Regards Frank

    You say it works in IE so I'm guessing its likely cached. As I said upload your favicon. And yes you would have to change your name servers on your domain. Doing so will allow you to host your site with your current webhost and you won't need to use masking. This may not be possible if your ISP doesn't have name servers.

    Arrow Thanks


    Thanks for the comment
    I've been at it for weeks now. I've pointed my domain to named servers now
    I'll just have to wait and see what happens!
    I just wished I should have joined here earlier. I've been using javascriptkit for years.
    Happy New Year to you all
    Regards
    Frank
