Once you have your favicon.ico and perhaps an animated_favicon.gif and an apple-touch-icon.png for Apple iOS devices, you need to place them in your site root folder next to your index.html homepage. You also have to remember to upload the icons to your hosting server and to paste the following code on your index page, just under the title metatag in the head:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" >
<link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="animated_favicon1.gif" >
<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="apple-touch-icon.png" >
