Should I create a new SSH key
I already have quite a few SSH keys and wanted to reuse them - is this an ok idea?
Before I spun up a droplet in my new DO account I was given the option to create a key. But I am now asked when creating my first droplet to add another key. So if I dont add a key at this stage is it possible to add later? I read somewhere that you cant add keys after spinning up. But how does that sound right if I needed to give SSH access to another dev??
Sorry for the noob question.
I am also thinking that we should not be deleting droplets lightly as everything will disappear. Is there a chance this could happen and loose the entire data of websites on the droplet?
