You can connect your website(SFTP) by using our Public Key or by using your own Private Key. Setting up a website connection using Public Key is easier, however, we recommend you use Private Key or Encrypted Private Key with a password.

Using Our Public Key:

When connecting your website, toggle "Use Our Public Key" to view our backup server public key which you need can add to your server's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file.

This public key will allow our backup servers to connect without the need for a password.

Using Your Private Key:

You can use your own Private Key to connect your website(SFTP). When connecting your website then toggle "Use Your Private Key" and then add your private key.

It's recommended that you use an encrypted private key with a password.

To generate a Private Key, please follow these steps.

Login to your SSH terminal and enter.

ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "your_email@example.com"

Once the key is generated then make sure you add Public Key part of your private key to file ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
