How to email customers their Droplet information. Using DigitalOcean as a hosting company/SaaS business.

I am in the process of developing a hosting/SaaS business using DigitalOcean. I already have the Droplet creation done, but now I need the Droplet’s root information (username, password, etc) to be emailed to my customer. I have heard people say you can use SSH keys, but would this be as user-friendly? I’m still pretty new to this.

I’m open to all suggestions, and if you need more information please ask.

Thank you for your help in advance!

I decided to use SSH keys instead. The client is supposed to easily create their own SSH key in which they would use that for their VM. In the long run, this provides WAY more security.

My advice: consider use Webmin
