Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. In contrast to an Internet hosting service where you can have a website that's accessible online by typing a domain name, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access via their app using a computer or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual Internet site. The service allows you to access your data from any location provided that you log in with the right credentials. Because the firm allows third-party firms to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we present you with the opportunity to produce regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you've got enough space. This shall add one more level of protection for your sites since you will always have a copy of any data that you may need and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy will be available not just on their servers, but also in a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting

If you wish to make the most of our Dropbox backup service and you have a shared hosting account, you can permit this option with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel and our system will start producing backups the very same day. Based on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and the amount of content you've got on our hosting servers, you'll be able to pick the number of different backups that will be generated, ranging from 3 to 14. You could also decide if backups will be created simply of the Internet site files or of the databases too and Hepsia will allow you to enable this option for every website or database individually, so you can back up just the content which you actually need. Allowing the service is very simple and all it takes is to incorporate your Dropbox account in the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may even include several accounts and removing one you no longer want to use takes only a mouse click. You could use this service along with our regular backups which are generated four times a day and include all of your files and databases.

Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts created on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform come with the Dropbox backup feature by default, so you'll be able to link an account that you have with them with one or two mouse clicks. The tool which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP will allow you to pick different options - what Internet site files and databases shall be backed up and how many copies should be kept inside your Dropbox account. Thus you can have a copy just of specific content for up to 14 days back. These options could be altered effortlessly whenever you want and you can even use multiple 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 that you have on their end. As the backed up content could be accessed in a conventional folder on your PC, this feature is a valuable addition to the daily backups that we shall make of your entire account at least four times every day.

Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers

You can use this function with all VPS servers which we offer provided you opt for Hepsia for the hosting CP. Your Dropbox account can be linked to the server through the user-friendly interface Hepsia includes and a copy of your information shall be stored in your Dropbox account every single day. The maximum amount of copies that you can have at any time is 14, therefore if you do not have enough free space with Dropbox or you have too much content on the VPS, you can either choose a smaller number of copies or you could pick just particular websites to be backed up. The latter can be included or eliminated from the backups at any time with ease. The Dropbox function will permit 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 given that you'll get a number of other administration tasks with it as well.

Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers which are offered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel incorporate the Dropbox backup function by default, therefore if you'd like to use this service, you just have to link the server to your account from the Dropbox section in Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will enable you to choose the Internet sites that will be backed up if you do not need the whole content you have on the server or you just do not have a lot of free space in your Dropbox account. You can also choose how many copies of the daily backups shall be stored, hence if you choose the maximum number of 14, for example, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for every day of the past fourteen days. Both options can be edited whenever you want in case you change your mind in regards to the content of the number of backups that you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account easily if you don't want to use it or if you would rather use the backup service that is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other beneficial server management tasks that our system administrators can perform for you.
