Why is there an SSH key in my cloud servers authorized_keys file?

The existing SSH key in your clouds authorized_keys file is our internal key. This key is used for multiple purposes, including the immediate upgrade/downgrade abilities of the cloud services, assigning additional IPs, upgrading/downgrading other system resources, and when requested for logging into your server to provide support for an issue. It is safe to remove this key if you choose but please note that by doing so some features we offer as part of the cloud plans may not function properly.
