Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike a hosting service where you can have a site that's accessible online by entering a domain address, Dropbox permits you to store files, that you can access through their app using a personal computer or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file will be listed and not displayed as an actual site. The service permits you to access your information from any location so long as you log in with the proper credentials. Since the company allows third-party service providers to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we offer you the opportunity to produce regular automatic backups of the info you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you've got enough space. This shall incorporate one more level of protection for your websites since you will always have a copy of any info that you might require and if the app is installed on your computer, a copy shall be available not just on their web servers, but also inside a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Shared Web Hosting

The Dropbox backup feature is accessible with all our shared web hosting packages and enabling it takes several mouse clicks, so you are able to link the account on our end to your Dropbox space without difficulty. The tool which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to select which websites and databases should be backed up independently and how many copies should be made, the maximum amount being 14. That way you'll be able to have a daily copy of your information for the past two weeks in case that you change or delete something that you need. How much content shall be stored in your Dropbox account and how many copies shall be available also depends on the size of the content and the disk space you have on their end. The feature could be enabled or disabled whenever you want and if necessary, you can quickly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even add numerous accounts and have different websites backed up in different accounts.

Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get one of our semi-dedicated servers, you'll be able to use the Dropbox backup function with ease since linking the two accounts takes no more than a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia CP, which is employed for the management of the semi-dedicated accounts. Based on the total size of the content that you have on our end, the space quota of your Dropbox account and the data that you'd like to have, you can decide if your entire account shall be backed up or just particular sites and databases. Furthermore, you can select the amount of daily backups which will be kept inside your Dropbox account at any moment. The amount ranges from three to fourteen and can be altered in either direction at any time. The Dropbox account could be removed from our system with only a click if you no longer wish to use the service, although it comes really handy in the event thatyou'd like to get a copy of your files automatically on your desktop or notebook on top of the full backups which we generate on a daily basis on our end.

Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers which are provided with our Hepsia hosting CP include the Dropbox backup function 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 allow you to choose the websites that will be backed up if you don't need the entire content which you have on the server or you simply don't have plenty of free space inside your Dropbox account. You can also pick how many copies of the day-to-day backups shall be kept, thus if you opt for the maximum number of 14, for example, you shall have a copy of your files and databases for every day of the past 14 days. Both options could be edited at any time in case you change your mind in regards to the content of the number of backups that you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account easily if you don't want to use it or if you want to use the backup service that is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other beneficial server management tasks that our system admins can perform for you.
