If you have an SSH password, then your connection doesn't need the SSH key. Username/Password is enough to connect. SSH key authentication is a way of connecting to a server without having to use a password. If you only want to allow key-based login, you can try contacting your host and ask them disable password login over SSH(/SFTP).


This appears to be an asmallorange shared hosting issue in that they do not require a key for SFTP connections.
