Whats the purpose of add my public key when buy a droplet?
Hello I’m developer and I am trying to buy one more droplet in here, and in the process I have a question.
As I know, public key should be sent to user from server, so in my point of view, it’s normal that first I buy a server and after that I make a ssh key and send public key to my computer.
But when we create new droplet, we add public key that is created in my computer which is not a server. So, I want to know what’s the purpose of add my public key when I buy droplet.
And also, it’s recommended that create new ssh key whenever I buy a new droplet in another purpose? I think the answer is gonna be yes, but I’m not sure.
