Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have a site that is accessible online by typing a domain address, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access through their application using a personal computer or a smart phone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not presented as an actual site. The service permits you to access your information from any location so long as you log in with the right credentials. As the company allows third-party companies to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the opportunity to create regular automatic backups of the data that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you have enough space. This will add one more level of security for your sites since you shall always have a copy of any info that you might require and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy shall be available not only on their servers, but also inside a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting

You can use the Dropbox backup function with all shared hosting packages that we offer and at no extra charge. Via the respective section within the Hepsia CP, you could link a Dropbox account with several mouse clicks and the backups will start being produced there the same day. You'll be able to choose the sites and databases which shall be copied there individually, 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'll be kept inside your Dropbox account, ranging from 3 to fourteen, so you can have a daily copy of your data going 14 days back. Including multiple accounts or deleting one which you no longer want to use is as effortless. The Dropbox backups may be used in addition to the daily backups that we keep of all your information just in case that you would like to have a copy on your personal computer through the Dropbox application.

Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated packages, you'll be able to use the Dropbox backup function easily since linking the 2 accounts takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia CP, which is employed for the management of the semi-dedicated accounts. Based on the total size of the content that you have on our end, the space quota of your Dropbox account and the data that you would like to have, you'll be able to decide if your entire account will be backed up or only certain websites and databases. Moreover, you could select the amount of daily backups which will be kept within your Dropbox account at any given time. The amount ranges from 3 to 14 and can be changed in either direction at any time. The Dropbox account could be removed from our system with only a mouse click if you no longer need to use the service, although it comes really handy ifyou wish to get a copy of your files automatically on your laptop or computer aside from the full backups that we generate on a daily basis on our end.

Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Hosting

All dedicated hosting which are supplied with our Hepsia hosting CP include the Dropbox backup function by default, thus if you wish to use this service, you only have to link the server to your account using the Dropbox section in Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will allow you to pick the sites which will be backed up if you do not require the entire content you have on the server or you simply don't have plenty of free space in your Dropbox account. You could also choose how many copies of the day-to-day backups shall be stored, hence if you pick the maximum number of 14, for example, you will have a copy of your files and databases for every single day of the past 14 days. Both options can be edited at any time in the event that you change your mind regarding the content of the number of backups you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account effortlessly if you do not want to use it or if you want to use the backup service that's a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other practical server management tasks our system admins can perform for you.
