SoAPI closing soon

At the beginning of 2016 we will start to gradually close down the SoAPI service. We recommend that you start migrating your SoAPI calls to their equivalents in APIv6. To assist you with this migration a table of equivalents is available at the following address https://www.ovh.com/fr/soapi-to-apiv6-migration/.
