Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. Different from a web hosting service where you can have an Internet site which is accessible online by typing a domain name, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access from their app using a computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual site. The service allows you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the proper credentials. Because the company allows third-party firms to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we offer you the chance to generate regular automatic backups of the content that you have on our end to a Dropbox account as long as you have enough space. This shall add one more level of security for your Internet sites because you shall always have a copy of any data that you could require and if the application is installed on your computer, a copy shall be available not just on their hosting servers, but also inside a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting

You could use Dropbox for backups irrespective of the shared hosting service that you opt for when you sign up and the function shall be available within the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts. Linking one or even multiple Dropbox accounts takes simply a couple of clicks and as soon as the connection with our system is created, you could pick if all your data shall be backed up there or only certain Internet sites and databases. This varies according to the size of the content material you have on our end and how much space you have inside your Dropbox account. The amount of backups which you can have ranges from three to 14 and our system will create a new one each day, so you could have a copy of your files for up to two weeks back and you'll be able to access them on your PC as conventional files and folders. You could change the websites or the number of backups at any time. This functionality is an excellent addition to the backups that we will keep of your entire content 4 times per day. In case you no longer want your Dropbox account to be linked to our system, you'll be able to remove it with a click inside your CP.

Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts created on our advanced cloud hosting platform feature the Dropbox backup feature by default, so you can link an account that you have with them with one or two clicks. The tool that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP will allow you to pick different options - what website files and databases will be backed up and what number of copies ought to be kept in your Dropbox account. In this way you can have a copy only of specific content for up to 14 days back. These options can be changed easily at any time and you can even use several Dropbox accounts or delete ones you no longer want to use. You should only make sure that the total size of the backups will not exceed the disk space limit which you have on their end. Because the backed up content could be accessed in a standard folder on your computer, this function is a valuable addition to the daily backups that we will create of your entire account at least four times daily.

Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers

The Dropbox backups are available with all dedicated servers obtained with the Hepsia CP and you could link the two accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks via an incredibly user-friendly interface which shall permit you to pick the exact content that'll be backed up and the number of copies that will be available in your Dropbox account at any moment. That way you can take advantage of this service in case you do not have a sufficient amount of space with Dropbox for the whole content on the server or you simply need only some of the content. Hepsia will enable you to specify the folders to be backed up and to choose between 3 and fourteen daily copies to be preserved, so you can have backups for up to 2 weeks back. You could change these options with a click whenever you choose or you can delete the Dropbox account from the CP if you don't plan to use it anymore. As a substitute we provide in-house backups too, which you could get as a standalone service or as a part of the Managed Services package which includes numerous handy server administration tasks.
