By adding your SSH key to the SSH Key Manager, you add your SSH key to all Hypernodes you have access to without having to do this for each Hypernode separately. You can also add an SSH key to one Hypernode for deployment purposes.

Repeat the above steps if you would like to add more keys.

Adding an SSH Key to One Hypernode

Important

  • The following SSH public key types in the control panel are supported: RSA keys >= 2048 bits (*), ECDSA and Ed25519 keys.
  • DSA and RSA keys < 2048 bits * will not be permitted because they are not secure.
  • You will be prompted with a clear message if there is a problem with your key.
