    I cannot upload favicon.ico to my server. I tried uploading as an image file and even as hyperlink and both failed as the error message says "The File Type Is Not Allowed".

    When I used the validator to validate the favicon the following text appears:-

    (Ticked) Found the web page at : http://www.<domain>

    (Ticked) Found <link rel="shortcut icon"...> tag that specify a favicon: <link rel='shortcut icon' href='http://site.<domain>/clients/kualalum/images/favicon.ico' >

    (Ticked) Found favicon at:
    http://site.<domain>/clients/kualalum/images/favicon.ico (0.22 KB) Favicon

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


    Can somebody kindly email me (info@<domain>) how to upload favicon.ico file to my server when .ico is not allowed. Thank you.

      This is something you'd have to check with your web host. You might be
      able to upload favicon.ico as favicon.gif, and once the file is on the
      server rename it back to favicon.ico. I'd contact the web host to make sure.
