How Nexcess Cloud clients can use their Client Portal to add SSH keys to their service.
What you need
Your Client Portal username and password. These were originally provided in the Nexcess Welcome Email, though you may have since changed them. If you cannot locate this information, click Forgot Password? on the Client Portal login page or contact our 24/7 support Team.
An existing Nexcess Cloud account. See How to create Nexcess Cloud accounts for more information. If you are a Nexcess client on a non-cloud server, see instead How to reset your SSH password and add SSH keys in SiteWorx.
- An existing SSH key. To create one, see either:
Log in to your Client Portal. From the menu toggle next to your name, select SSH Keys.
Click Add Key.
Fill the Name and Key fields, then click Add.
If successful, your Cloud service will immediately begin using your SSH key.
