WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi. At my other host the advice given is that, if a website has no favicon, it's a good idea (for performance reasons) for the top directory to contain zero-length files named favicon.gif and favicon.ico.

Does the same advice hold good at webfaction or is there another approach that would suit your servers better?

This is correct, partially because it will suppress "no favicon found" error messages.

At the same time, the actual performance difference is likely to be very small, or unnoticeable, so it largely shouldn't matter either way.

Hope that helps!
