Dropbox is a file storage platform, which has been gaining a lot in popularity recently as it allows you to access any content stored on its servers from any device provided that their software is set up. The data is synchronized between all units, so that you may access it at any moment. Dropbox does not offer web hosting services, so if you upload an html file it won't show up as a site and shall not be executed. This service is used just for storing information and we've taken advantage of the fact that they provide an API to third-party companies to create a backup service on our end, which you'll be able to use if you host your sites on our web servers. With this added function you'll not have tobe worried about your content as you will always have a copy of your sites on the Dropbox servers and on your laptop or computer in the event that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files by mistake, and so forth.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting
You could use the Dropbox backup feature with all shared hosting plans
which we offer and at no extra charge. Using the respective section within the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to link a Dropbox account with several mouse clicks and the backups will start being produced there the same day. You can pick the websites and databases that will be copied there one by one, so if you have loads of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you could select only the content you truly need. You'll be able to also pick the number of backups that will be kept inside your Dropbox account, ranging from three to fourteen, so you'll be able to have a daily copy of your information going two weeks back. Incorporating a number of accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is just as simple. The Dropbox backups can be used together with the daily backups which we keep of all your content in case that you would like to have a copy on your laptop or computer via the Dropbox app.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated plans
, you can use the Dropbox backup function easily as linking the 2 accounts takes just several clicks in the Hepsia CP, which is employed for the management of the semi-dedicated accounts. Based on the total size of the content which you have on our end, the space quota of your Dropbox account and the data which you'd like to have, you'll be able to decide if your whole account shall be backed up or just certain sites and databases. Also, you'll be able to select the amount of daily backups that'll be kept inside your Dropbox account at one time. The amount ranges from 3 to 14 and can be changed in either direction whenever you want. The Dropbox account could be eliminated from our system with only a click if you no longer need to use the service, although it comes really handy in the event thatyou'd like to get a copy of your files automatically on your PC aside from the full backups which we produce on a daily basis on our end.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans
that are set up with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel include the Dropbox backup feature by default, so if you would like to employ this service, you only have to link the server to your account from the Dropbox section inside Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will permit you to pick the websites which will be backed up in case that you don't require the entire content you have on the server or you just do not have much free space within your Dropbox account. You can also decide how many copies of the everyday backups shall be stored, hence if you opt for the maximum number of fourteen, for example, you shall have a copy of your files and databases for each day of the past two weeks. Both options could be edited anytime in case you change your mind with regards to the content of the number of backups which you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account with ease if you don't want to use it or if you want to 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.
