Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 2:34 pm

SSH is a secure protocol that allows users to connect to remote computers. DigitalOcean provides a secure shell service that allows you to connect to your Droplet and work on your files remotely.

To connect to your Droplet, you will need to have an SSH key. You can generate a key by following these steps:

1. Go to the DigitalOcean account page and click on the Keys tab.

2. Click on the Generate New Key button.

3. In the Key Details page, you will need to provide your Droplet’s IP address, Droplet name, and a password.

4. Click on the Download button to generate your key.

5. To use your key, you will need to copy it to your Droplet’s SSH server. To do this, you will need to open a terminal on your Droplet and type the following command:

ssh-copy-id @

For example, if your username is root and your Droplet’s IP address is 192.168.

PRO TIP: If you are unsure about how to download your SSH key from DigitalOcean, we recommend that you consult with a qualified IT professional. Downloading your SSH key can be a complex process, and if done incorrectly, could jeopardize the security of your system.

1.100, you would type the following command:.

ssh-copy-id root@192.100.
