Does anybody here know how to change the little mini domain insignia that one can see just before the http script in the browser address bar, or in a browser tab?

That called as favicon, which is a small sized graphic in generally we called as icon.

Now your point is how to set favicon for webpage, for that you just have need to add following lines in head section of your webpage.

<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="path to favicon ">

where "path to favicon" indicates the location at which webpage favicon has been stored. path may be relative or absolute.

Thanks everybody I'll look into it. For some reason a favicon appears though I have none set . . .

Different browsers will do that as a default.

Found another url here: http://www.iwebformusicians.com/iWeb/URLs-Favicons.html.

Apparently if whatever image one has is renamed favicon.ico (and it think is a png), then dropped intop the root directory of site (public_html) then most browsers will automagically load them for all site pages, no additonal html needed.

Worked for me!
