This document explains the importance and function of Secure Socket Shell (SSH) keys. After reading this document, you will be able to name and recognize what SSH keys are, and why they are important in specific circumstances.
Before You Begin
SSH keys are used in the unHosting Control Panel (UHCP) used by clients on unHosting. The SSH keys are used for uploading public SSH keys, such as id_rsa.pub file. Uploading SSH keys into the SSH keys configuration page does not deploy the key anywhere or make the key active on your web server. In order to use the SSH key for SSH logins to your web server, you must first go to the stack deployment page and add/deploy the key to your stack.
