Then you can do 1 of the following...

1. Order the FTP PowerUp (Click "Managed Hosting Panel" at the top of your dashboard. Then click "Upgrades") and upload/replace the existing favicon.ico in the top directory

2. Or Under Media > Add (from your WordPress Dashboard) upload a new favicon.ico. Then under Appearance > Editor open header.php and replace the link to the favicon.ico with the new link to your uploaded images.
