In Clouding you have at your disposal different methods of access to your cloud servers. You can choose between access by SSH keys (you can create or import them in your client panel) or access by password. Below we explain these two access methods: how to set up a new password and how to set up an SSH key to access your server.
Access to the cloud server with password
You can set a personal password on Clouding images as shown in the screenshot below:
For both Windows and Linux servers, you will be able to select a password manually and you can check the Save Password option so that you can later view it in the panel:
If you do not select the Save Password option the system will not remember it for you and when you try to view the password it will look like this:
Finally, you have the option to generate a secure password randomly by clicking on the Generate password button:
Access to the cloud server with SSH key
From your client panel you also have access to your cloud server via SSH keys. You can access Linux servers by configuring an SSH key to make access more secure and without a password.

In the Access Settings section, you can select the SSH Key you want to configure for your server. You can choose between the PublicPrivateKey, which includes the private and public keys, and the PublicKey, which, as indicated, is only the public key.
Inside your Clouding panel, in the My SSH Keys section, you can create a pair of SSH keys (Public and Private) or just upload a public key or a private key that you have on your computer. If you want to know more you can check this article: How to use you SSH in Clouding
You can also create or add an SSH key during server creation by clicking on Add SSH key:
