How to change SSH @IP to something else

Posted March 2, 2020 129 views

I’m currently login to my remote server by doing: ssh root@IP

Is there a way to replace the IP part with something easy to remember? just so I don’t have to type the whole IP all the time

Thank you

Hi there @jouo,

What you could do is either to point your domain name to your Droplet and then you will be able to run ssh your_user@your_domain.com.

If you do not have a domain name you could edit your SSH config on your local PC and add a shortcut, you can take a look at this article here on how to do that:

Let me know if you have any questions!

Bobby
