Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to an Internet hosting service where you can have a website that is accessible online by typing a domain, Dropbox enables you to store files, which you can access through their application using a PC or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual Internet page. The service enables you to access your data from any location provided that you log in with the proper credentials. As the firm allows third-party service providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we give you the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the information you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you've got enough space. This shall add one more level of protection for your sites as you will always have a copy of any data that you may need and if the application is installed on your personal computer, a copy will be available not just on their hosting servers, but also inside a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Website Hosting
You'll be able to use the Dropbox backup feature with all cloud website hosting packages
which we offer and at no extra cost. Through the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to link a Dropbox account with several clicks and the backups will start being generated there the same day. You could choose the sites and databases which will be copied there individually, so if you have a lot of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you can select only the content which you really need. You'll be able to also pick the number of backups that'll be kept in your Dropbox account, ranging from three to 14, so you could have a daily copy of your content going two weeks back. Including numerous accounts or deleting one which you no longer want to use is just as effortless. The Dropbox backups could be used together with the daily backups which we keep of all your content in the event that you would like to have a copy on your laptop or computer via the Dropbox application.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages
, you could benefit from the Dropbox backup feature without difficulty since linking the two accounts takes only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is employed for the management of the semi-dedicated accounts. With respect to 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 can choose if your whole account will be backed up or just particular sites and databases. In addition, you can pick the number of daily backups that'll be kept within your Dropbox account at any moment. The amount ranges from 3 to fourteen and can be adjusted in either direction at any time. The Dropbox account could be removed from our system with just a mouse click if you no longer need to use the service, although it comes quite handy in the event thatyou'd like to get a copy of your files automatically on your PC aside from the full backups which we produce on a daily basis on our end.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
which are provided with our Hepsia hosting CP incorporate the Dropbox backup function by default, therefore if you would like to use this service, you simply have to link the server to your account using the Dropbox section within Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will permit you to pick the websites that'll be backed up if you don't need the whole content which you have on the server or you simply do not have plenty of free space in your Dropbox account. You can also select how many copies of the daily backups will be saved, consequently if you choose the maximum number of 14, for instance, you will have a copy of your files and databases for each and every day of the past 14 days. Both options could be edited at any time in case you change your mind in regards to the content of the number of backups you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account with ease if you do not want to use it or if you prefer to use the backup service that is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other handy server management tasks which our system admins can perform for you.
