Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity lately as it allows you to access any content saved on its servers from any device provided that their application is set up. The information is synchronized between all units, so you may access it anytime. Dropbox does not offer hosting services, so if you upload an html file it shall not display as a site and shall not be executed. The service is used only for storing information and we've taken advantage of the fact that they offer an API to third-party companies to set up a backup service on our end, which you could use if you host your websites on our servers. With this additional function you won't have tobe worried about your content due to the fact that 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 failing, deleting files accidentally, and so forth.

Dropbox Backups in Website Hosting

The Dropbox backup function is available with all our website hosting plans and activating it takes a couple of clicks, so you are able to link the account on our end to your Dropbox space without difficulty. The tool which you will find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select which Internet sites and databases should be backed up independently and how many copies should be generated, the maximum amount being fourteen. That way you could have a daily copy of your information for the past two weeks if you alter or delete something that you need. How much content will be stored in your Dropbox account and how many copies shall be available also is determined by the size of the content and the disk space that you have on their end. The feature can be enabled or disabled anytime and if needed, you may effortlessly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even incorporate multiple accounts and have various Internet sites backed up in different accounts.

Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get one of our semi-dedicated servers, you can benefit from the Dropbox backup function without difficulty because linking the 2 accounts takes only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is employed for the management of the semi-dedicated accounts. Depending on the total size of the content that you have on our end, the space quota of your Dropbox account and the information that you'd like to have, you could choose if your entire account will be backed up or only specific websites and databases. Also, you'll be able to select the number of daily backups that will be kept in your Dropbox account at any given time. The number ranges from 3 to fourteen and could be altered in either direction at any moment. The Dropbox account can be eliminated from our system with just a mouse click if you no longer would like to use the service, although it comes quite handy in caseyou want to get a copy of your files automatically on your computer in addition to the full backups which we create on a daily basis on our end.
