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 address, Dropbox permits you to store files, that you can access from their application using a computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual Internet site. The service allows you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the right credentials. Because the firm allows third-party providers to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we give you the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the data that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you've got enough space. This shall incorporate one more level of protection for your websites because you shall always have a copy of any data that you might require and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy shall be available not just on their web servers, but also inside a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Web Hosting
You could use the Dropbox backup feature with all cloud web hosting services that we offer and at no extra cost. Through the respective section in the Hepsia CP, you could link a Dropbox account with a couple of mouse clicks and the backups will start being created there the same day. You could choose the sites and databases which shall be copied there separately, so if you have a lot of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you could select only the content that you actually need. You'll be able to also choose the number of backups that will be kept within your Dropbox account, ranging from three to 14, so you could have a daily copy of your content going two weeks back. Adding a number of accounts or deleting one which you no longer want to use is equally simple. The Dropbox backups can be used in addition to the daily backups which we keep of all your data just in case that you would like to have a copy on your PC through the Dropbox app.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All semi-dedicated hosting accounts created on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform include the Dropbox backup function by default, so you can link an account that you have with them with a few clicks. The tool which you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP will allow you to choose different options - what site files and databases will be backed up and what number of copies ought to be kept inside your Dropbox account. Thus you'll be able to have a copy just of particular content for up to 2 weeks back. These options could be modified effortlessly whenever you want and you could even use a number of Dropbox accounts or delete ones which you no longer want to use. You should just ensure that the total size of the backups doesn't exceed the disk space limit you have on their end. Because the backed up content can be accessed in a regular folder on your personal computer, this function is a useful addition to the daily backups that we'll create of your whole account at least four times daily.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Web Hosting
The Dropbox backups are available with all Linux dedicated web hosting obtained with the Hepsia CP and you'll be able to link the 2 accounts with only a few mouse clicks through a really user-friendly interface that will permit you to choose the exact content that shall be backed up and the number of copies which will be available within your Dropbox account at any moment. In this way you can take advantage of this service if you do not have sufficient space with Dropbox for the entire content on the server or you simply need merely some of the information. Hepsia will enable you to specify the folders to be backed up and to select between 3 and 14 daily copies to be kept, so you could have backups for up to two weeks back. You'll be able to edit these options with a click whenever you want or you may eliminate the Dropbox account from the CP if you do not plan to use it anymore. Alternatively we provide in-house backups too, which you can get as a standalone service or as a component of the Managed Services package that includes a range of handy server administration tasks.
