  • cost of disk space per 1 GB
  • traffic cost per 1 GB

Charging is done every 5 seconds (may change)

What is SSH public key

Using SSH public key authentication to connect to a remote system is a robust, more secure alternative to logging in with an account password or passphrase. SSH public key authentication relies on asymmetric cryptographic algorithms that generate a pair of separate keys (a key pair), one “private” and the other “public”. You keep the private key a secret and store it on the computer you use to connect to the remote system.

SSH public key is used to connect to the rented machines, you may specify it in Account->Settings->SSH public key.
