Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have a website which is accessible online by inputting a domain, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access from their app using a PC or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual website. The service enables you to access your content from any location as long as you log in with the right credentials. Since the company allows third-party firms to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we offer you the chance to produce regular automatic backups of the data that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you have enough space. This will incorporate one more level of security for your websites since you shall always have a copy of any data that you could need and if the application is installed on your computer, a copy will be available not only on their hosting servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting
You could use the Dropbox backup function with all shared hosting packages
we offer and at no extra cost. Using the respective section inside the Hepsia CP, you can link a Dropbox account with several clicks and the backups will start being produced there the same day. You can choose the sites and databases which shall be copied there one by one, so if you have a lot of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you can choose just the content that you really need. You could also select the number of backups that will be kept inside your Dropbox account, ranging from 3 to 14, so you can have a daily copy of your data going 14 days back. Adding numerous accounts or deleting one which you no longer want to use is just as easy. The Dropbox backups can be used along with the daily backups which we keep of all your content in case that you would like to have a copy on your personal computer via the Dropbox application.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All semi-dedicated hosting
accounts set up on our advanced cloud web hosting platform include the Dropbox backup function by default, so you can link an account which you have with them with one or two mouse clicks. The tool which you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to pick different options - what Internet site files and databases shall be backed up and how many copies must be kept within your Dropbox account. Thus you can have a copy just of particular content for up to 2 weeks back. These options could be modified without difficulty at any time and you may even use multiple Dropbox accounts or delete ones you no longer want to use. You should only make certain that the total size of the backups won't exceed the disk space limit you have on their end. Given that the backed up content can be accessed in a standard folder on your PC, this function is a valuable addition to the daily backups that we will generate of your entire account at least four times each day.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Web Hosting
You can use this function with all VPS web hosting packages
we offer provided that you opt for Hepsia for the hosting Control Panel. Your Dropbox account can be linked to the server via the user-friendly interface Hepsia provides and a copy of your information shall be stored in your Dropbox account every single day. The maximum amount of copies you can have at any given time is 14, therefore if you do not have much free space with Dropbox or you have too much content on the VPS, you can either select a smaller number of copies or you could choose only specific websites to be backed up. The latter can be added or eliminated from the backups at any time with ease. The Dropbox feature shall allow you to get a copy of your content right on your PC every day without doing anything by hand, but you may also consider the backup service that we offer with our Managed Services upgrade since you'll get several other administration tasks with it as well.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that are set up with our Hepsia hosting CP come with the Dropbox backup feature by default, consequently if you need to employ this service, you only have to link the server to your account from the Dropbox section within Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will allow you to select the websites which will be backed up if you don't require the whole content that you have on the server or you simply do not have much free space within your Dropbox account. You'll be able to also decide how many copies of the daily backups will be kept, so if you opt for the maximum number of fourteen, for example, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for each day of the past two weeks. Both options could be edited anytime if you change your mind regarding the content of the number of backups you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account effortlessly if you do not want to use it or if you would rather use the backup service which is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other helpful server management tasks our system administrators can perform for you.
