Unfortunately the web console does not support copy/paste functions. It is intended as an emergency access method and not for daily use. We strongly recommend using an SSH client to connect to and manage your droplet.

This guide will assist you in connecting to your droplet via SSH from Windows, OSX(macOS) or Linux.

DigitalOcean Droplets are managed using a terminal and SSH. SSH is an encrypted network protocol for remote server login and command execution. It is the standard method used for accessing and interacting with Linux servers. This tutorial shows how to connect to a DigitalOcean Droplet for the first time by using the OpenSSH client.
