Creating a NIC-Handle:

Every OVH customer must have a unique user identification, known as a nic-handle. You may create your nic-handle during your first order process, or you may create a nic-handle separately by using the form on our site, which can be found HERE.

The options on the form are reasonably self-explanatory, but do pay particular attention to the "Profile" section i.e. individual / company / etc.

Once you have completed the first page, click on "Continue". You will then be asked to provide a password for the account, which must be entered twice to reduce the risk of error. Again, click "Continue".

You have now created an OVH nic-handle, details of which will be e-mailed to the address provided.

We are aware that some of our customers may be new to both OVH and the world of internet hosting.

With this in mind, we hope to add a series of guides to this thread that will help to explain some of the basic processes and procedures that may need to be performed.

If you have any suggestions for topics that we could cover, please let us know.

We'll start with the creation of a nic-handle...
