Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to a web hosting service where you can have a website which is accessible online by entering a domain, Dropbox permits you to store files, that you can access from 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 webpage. The service allows you to access your data from any location as long as you log in with the right credentials. Because the company allows third-party providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we present you with the opportunity to create regular automatic backups of the data that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got sufficient space. This will include one more level of protection for your Internet sites simply because you shall always have a copy of any information that you could require and if the application is installed on your personal computer, a copy shall be available not only on their servers, but also within a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Cloud Website Hosting

The Dropbox backup feature is offered with all of our cloud website hosting plans and enabling it takes several clicks, so you'll be able to link the account on our end to your Dropbox space effortlessly. The tool which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel shall permit you to choose which websites and databases should be backed up individually and what number of copies has to be created, the highest number being fourteen. In this way you can have a daily copy of your content for the past 14 days in case you modify or delete something that you need. How much content will be stored within your Dropbox account and how many copies will be available also depends upon the size of the data and the disk space you have on their end. The feature could be enabled or disabled anytime and if necessary, you'll be able to effortlessly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even include a number of accounts and have various sites backed up in different accounts.

Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated plans, you can use the Dropbox backup function without difficulty since linking the 2 accounts takes no more than a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is employed for the management of the semi-dedicated accounts. Dependant upon the total size of the content which you have on our end, the space quota of your Dropbox account and the information which you wish to have, you'll be able to decide if your whole account will be backed up or just particular Internet sites and databases. Moreover, you'll be able to pick the number of daily backups that'll be kept within your Dropbox account at any moment. The amount ranges from three to 14 and could be altered in either direction whenever you want. The Dropbox account can be removed from our system with a click if you no longer would like to use the service, although it comes really handy ifyou'd like to get a copy of your files automatically on your laptop or computer aside from the full backups which we keep on a daily basis on our end.

Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that are provided with our Hepsia hosting CP include the Dropbox backup feature by default, thus if you'd like to employ this service, you only have to link the server to your account via the Dropbox section in Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will allow you to select the websites which will be backed up in case that you do not require the whole content you have on the server or you simply don't have a lot of free space in your Dropbox account. You can also choose how many copies of the day-to-day backups shall be kept, consequently if you choose the maximum number of fourteen, for example, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for each day of the past 14 days. Both options can be edited at any time in the event that you change your mind in regards to the content of the number of backups you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account easily if you don't need to use it or if you would rather 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.
