Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity nowadays as it allows you to access any content saved on its web servers through any device so long as their application is set up. The data is synchronized between all units, so you will be able to access it at any time. Dropbox does not offer Internet hosting services, hence if you upload an html file it won't show up as a website and will not be executed. The service is used just for storing information and we've taken advantage of the fact that they provide an API to third-party businesses to create a backup service on our end, which you'll be able to use if you host your websites on our hosting servers. With this added function you won't have tobe worried about your content as you'll always have a copy of your Internet sites on the Dropbox servers and on your personal computer just in case that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files by mistake, and so forth.

Dropbox Backups in Website Hosting

You'll be able to use Dropbox for backups whatever the website hosting plan that you pick when you sign up and the feature will be available in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts. Linking one or even a number of Dropbox accounts takes just a couple of clicks and the moment the connection with our system is set up, you'll be able to pick if all your info shall be backed up there or only particular sites and databases. This depends upon the size of the content material you have on our end and the amount of space you have in your Dropbox account. The number of backups which you can have ranges from three to fourteen and our system shall make a new one every day, so you will have a copy of your info for up to fourteen days back and you shall be able to access them on your personal computer as standard files and folders. You could change the Internet sites or the number of backups at any time. This functionality is a great addition to the backups which we shall keep of your whole content four times per day. In case you no longer want your Dropbox account to be linked to our system, you can remove it with simply a click within your Control Panel.

Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts created on our state-of-the-art cloud web 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 several mouse clicks. The tool which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control panel will enable you to choose different options - what website files and databases shall be backed up and how many copies should be kept in your Dropbox account. That way you'll be able to have a copy only of certain content for up to 2 weeks back. These options could be altered with ease at any time and you can even use a number of Dropbox accounts or delete ones you no longer want to use. You should only ensure that the total size of the backups does not exceed the disk space limit which you have on their end. As the backed up content can be accessed in a regular folder on your computer, this function is a handy addition to the daily backups which we'll generate of your whole account at least 4 times daily.

Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that are supplied with our Hepsia hosting CP include the Dropbox backup function by default, consequently if you would like to use this service, you just have to link the server to your account via the Dropbox section inside Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will permit you to choose the sites that'll be backed up if you do not require the entire content that you have on the server or you just don't have plenty of free space within your Dropbox account. You'll be able to also decide how many copies of the daily backups shall be saved, consequently if you opt for the maximum number of 14, for instance, 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 if you change your mind with regards to the content of the number of backups which you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account without difficulty 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 handy server management tasks that our system admins can perform for you.
