Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Unlike a web hosting service where you can have a website which is accessible online by entering a domain address, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access through their app using a personal computer or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not presented as an actual webpage. The service enables you to access your information from any location as long as you log in with the correct credentials. Since the company allows third-party companies to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we present you with the chance to create regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you have enough space. This will include one more level of security for your sites as you will always have a copy of any information that you may need and if the application is installed on your personal computer, a copy shall be available not just on their servers, but also within a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting

The Dropbox backup feature is available with all of our shared hosting solutions and enabling it takes a couple of mouse clicks, so you could link the account on our end to your Dropbox space with ease. The tool that you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to pick which websites and databases should be backed up individually and how many copies must be made, the maximum number being fourteen. Thus you could have a daily copy of your information for the past 14 days if you modify or delete something that you need. How much content shall be stored in your Dropbox account and how many copies will be available also depends on the size of the data and the disk space which you have on their end. The feature may be enabled or disabled whenever you want and if necessary, you'll be able to effortlessly 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 Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are offered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel include the Dropbox backup function by default, therefore if you would like to employ this service, you only have to link the server to your account using the Dropbox section within Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will allow you to choose the Internet sites that'll be backed up in case that you don't require the whole content which you have on the server or you simply do not have much free space in your Dropbox account. You can also select how many copies of the everyday backups shall be saved, so if you pick the maximum number of 14, for instance, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for every day of the past 14 days. Both options can be edited whenever you want in the event that you change your mind regarding the content of the number of backups which you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account easily if you do not want to use it or if you would rather use the backup service that is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other helpful server management tasks our system admins can perform for you.
