Frequently Asked Questions
Repository Hosting uses public key cryptography to authenticate all private access to repositories over SSH. In order to access a private repository, or commit to a public repository, you will need to generate an SSH keypair and provide Repository Hosting with the public half of the keypair.
NOTE: If you have multiple accounts at Repository Hosting, then you will need to generate a new keypair for every account.
To register your public key, first log into Repository Hosting and then click the "My Profile" link in the upper right hand corner, or on the Settings link next to a user on the Account Dashboard. Select the "Public Keys" tab and then paste the entire contents of the public key file (with the .pub extension) into the form for adding public keys.
For more details on how to generate a keypair, see this page.
