Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have an Internet site that's accessible online by entering a domain, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access via their application using a personal computer or a smart phone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not presented as an actual Internet site. The service permits you to access your information from any location provided that you log in with the correct credentials. Because the company allows third-party service providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we present you with the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the info that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got enough space. This shall incorporate one more level of protection for your Internet sites because you will always have a copy of any data that you could need and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy shall be available not just on their web servers, but also inside a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Web Hosting

If you want to take full advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a web hosting account, you can enable this option with one or two mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel and our system will start generating backups the same day. Depending on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and the amount of content you have on our servers, you'll be able to choose the number of different backups that'll be made, ranging from 3 to 14. You can also decide if backups will be created just of the Internet site files or of the databases as well and Hepsia will permit you to enable this option for every site or database independently, to ensure you can back up just the content which you actually need. Activating the service is super easy and all it takes is to add your Dropbox account inside the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may even incorporate multiple accounts and removing one that you no longer want to use takes just a click. You can 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 packages which are set up with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel incorporate the Dropbox backup feature by default, thus if you would like to employ this service, you simply have to link the server to your account through the Dropbox section inside Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will allow you to pick the sites that'll be backed up if you do not need the whole content which you have on the server or you simply don't have a lot of free space inside your Dropbox account. You can also decide how many copies of the everyday backups shall be kept, hence if you pick the maximum number of 14, for example, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for each day of the past fourteen days. Both options can be edited anytime in case you change your mind regarding the content of the number of backups that you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account easily if you do not want to use it or if you prefer to use the backup service that's a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other useful server management tasks that our system admins can perform for you.
