Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to an Internet hosting service where you can have a site that's accessible online by inputting a domain, Dropbox permits you to store files, which you can access through their application using a personal computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual website. The service allows you to access your content material from any location as long as you log in with the proper credentials. As the firm allows third-party firms to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we give you the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the content that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got enough space. This will add one more level of security for your websites simply because you shall always have a copy of any information that you could need and if the app is installed on your computer system, a copy shall be available not only on their web servers, but also in a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting

If you want to take full advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a shared hosting account, you could enable this option with one or two clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel and our system will start creating backups the very same day. Based upon the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and the amount of content you've got on our hosting servers, you'll be able to select the number of different backups which shall be made, ranging from three to 14. You'll be able to also decide if backups will be made just of the Internet site files or of the databases also and Hepsia will permit you to enable this option for every website or database individually, to ensure you can back up precisely the content you actually need. Activating the service is quite simple and all it takes is to add your Dropbox account within the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may also add several accounts and removing one that you no longer want to use takes simply a click. You'll be able to use this service together with our regular backups which are generated 4 times a day and include all of your files and databases.

Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting which are supplied with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel incorporate the Dropbox backup feature by default, therefore if you'd like to employ this service, you simply have to link the server to your account via the Dropbox section inside Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will permit you to choose the Internet sites which will be backed up in case that you don't require the whole content you have on the server or you simply do not have a lot of free space in your Dropbox account. You can also pick how many copies of the day-to-day backups shall be stored, consequently if you pick the maximum number of fourteen, for example, you shall have a copy of your files and databases for every single day of the past fourteen days. Both options can be edited whenever you want in case you change your mind regarding the content of the number of backups which you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account effortlessly if you do not want to use it or if you want to use the backup service which is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other practical server management tasks that our system admins can perform for you.
