Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have a website which is accessible online by inputting a domain address, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access from their app using a computer or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file will be listed and not presented as an actual Internet page. The service allows you to access your data from any location as long as 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 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 shall add one more level of security for your websites because you will always have a copy of any information that you could need and if the application is installed on your PC, a copy shall be available not just on their hosting servers, but also inside a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Shared Web Hosting

If you wish to take advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you've got a shared web hosting account, you'll be able to permit this option with one or two mouse clicks inside your Hepsia CP and our system will start generating backups the same day. Depending on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and the amount of content you've got on our servers, you can pick the number of different backups that'll be made, ranging from 3 to 14. You may also choose if backups shall be made simply of the site files or of the databases also and Hepsia will allow you to enable this option for every Internet site or database separately, so you can back up just the content that you actually need. Enabling the service is a breeze and all it takes is to include your Dropbox account in the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may even include multiple accounts and removing one that you no longer want to use takes only a mouse click. You can use this service along with our regular backups which are made 4 times a day and incorporate all your files and databases.

Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts created on our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform include the Dropbox backup feature by default, so you'll be able to link an account that you have with them with a couple of mouse clicks. The tool which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to choose different options - what Internet site files and databases will be backed up and how many copies must be kept within your Dropbox account. That way you could have a copy only of specific content for up to two weeks back. These options could be modified easily at any time and you can even use a number of Dropbox accounts or delete ones that 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 that you have on their end. As the backed up content can be accessed in a conventional folder on your computer, this function is a valuable addition to the daily backups that we will make of your whole account at least 4 times daily.

Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers which are supplied with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with the Dropbox backup function by default, so if you need to use this service, you just have to link the server to your account using the Dropbox section within Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will enable you to select the sites that'll be backed up if you do not need the whole content that you have on the server or you simply don't have much free space inside your Dropbox account. You'll be able to also pick how many copies of the daily backups shall be stored, consequently if you opt for the maximum number of 14, for example, you will have a copy of your files and databases for each day of the past 2 weeks. Both options can be edited whenever you want if you change your mind with regards to the content of the number of backups which you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account without difficulty if you do not want to use it or if you would rather use the backup service that's a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other beneficial server management tasks our system admins can perform for you.
