Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to a hosting service where you can have an Internet site that's accessible online by typing a domain, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access via their app using a PC or a smart phone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not displayed as an actual Internet page. The service allows you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the correct credentials. As the firm allows third-party service providers to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we give you the chance to generate regular automatic backups of the content that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you have sufficient space. This will add one more level of security for your Internet sites since you will always have a copy of any info that you may require and if the application is installed on your personal computer, a copy will be available not just on their hosting servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to use the Dropbox backup feature with all shared hosting services that we offer and at no extra cost. Through the respective section inside the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to link a Dropbox account with several mouse clicks and the backups will start being generated there the same day. You'll be able to pick the Internet sites and databases that will be copied there independently, so if you have a lot of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you could select only the content you truly need. You can also choose the number of backups that will be kept in your Dropbox account, ranging from three to fourteen, so you can have a daily copy of your content going 14 days back. Including several accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is just as effortless. The Dropbox backups may be used along with the daily backups we keep of all your information in the event that you would like to have a copy on your personal computer through the Dropbox app.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server accounts set up on our advanced cloud hosting platform come with the Dropbox backup function by default, so you'll be able to link an account that you have with them with a couple of clicks. The tool that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to pick different options - what Internet site files and databases will be backed up and what amount of copies should be kept inside your Dropbox account. Thus you could have a copy only of particular content for up to 2 weeks back. These options could be altered easily anytime and you may even use several 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. Given that the backed up content could be accessed in a regular folder on your computer, this function is a handy addition to the daily backups which we will make of your entire account at least 4 times every single day.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
You can link a Dropbox account to any one of our dedicated servers provided that you get it with the in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is quite simple and takes merely several clicks, and so you could have a copy of your content material both on the Dropbox servers and on your PC the same exact day you link the two accounts. If you don't have a lot of space in Dropbox or you have a great deal of content on the dedicated server and you don't need all of it, you can choose certain domain or subdomain folders and databases to be backed up and even how many copies to be stored at one time. Our system is quite flexible, and so you can change the websites and the amount of daily backups at any time. The Dropbox account could be disconnected whenever you want, so if you no longer would like to use the service or you've decided to use our in-house backup service alongside all other administration tasks that we offer with our Managed Services upgrade, you'll be able to deactivate this feature with only a click.
