    I purchased a custom favicon and loaded the script and the favicon shows as invalid. I then used the favicon from photo creator and it showed the favicon on the mock web page in the viewer. But when I uploaded it, without making any changes, it still shows as invalid.

    My host is 1and1.com
    My web address is: www.mandalainvestigations.com

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! thanks in advance!

    Here is the results of the validator.

    Web page address :

    http://mandalainvestigations.com was checked but could not find a valid favicon.
    Details:
    Found the web page at:
    http://mandalainvestigations.com (3.06 KB)

    Found <link rel="shortcut icon" ...> tag that specify a favicon:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

    Found favicon at:
    http://mandalainvestigations.com/favicon.ico (0.22 KB)

    The favicon doesn't appear to be a valid icon.

      Hi,

      Please make sure that you've uploaded favicon.ico (all lowercase) to the
      root of your website. At the moment, if you go to the following URL,
      your web server is sending a file not found error:

      http://mandalainvestigations.com/favicon.ico

      Once you fix that your favicon should validate and show up.
