Understand better what Dropbox backups signify and ways to activate them from your hosting account.
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Different from a web hosting service where you can have a site which is accessible online by typing a domain, Dropbox enables you to store files, which you can access via their app using a personal computer or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file will be listed and not presented as an actual webpage. The service enables you to access your content from any location so long as you log in with the correct credentials. Since the company allows third-party companies to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the chance to produce regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you've got enough space. This shall incorporate one more level of security for your sites since you will always have a copy of any information that you might need and if the application is installed on your PC, a copy will be available not just on their web servers, but also inside a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Hosting
You can use Dropbox for backups whatever the cloud hosting plan
that you pick when you sign up and the function will be available within the Hepsia CP that comes with all accounts. Linking one or even a number of Dropbox accounts takes simply a few clicks and as soon as the connection with our system is set up, you can select if all of your data shall be backed up there or just specific Internet sites and databases. This varies according to the size of the content that you have on our end and the amount of space you have in your Dropbox account. The number of backups that you may have ranges from 3 to 14 and our system will make a new one every day, so you can have a copy of your info for up to 2 weeks back and you'll be able to access them on your laptop or computer as conventional files and folders. You could change the sites or the number of backups whenever you want. This functionality is an excellent addition to the backups that we will keep of your entire content 4 times per day. In the event that you no longer want your Dropbox account to be linked to our system, you'll be able to remove it with just a mouse click in your Control Panel.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server
accounts created on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform feature the Dropbox backup function by default, so you could link an account which you have with them with a few clicks. The tool which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to choose different options - what site files and databases will be backed up and how many copies should be kept within your Dropbox account. That way you can have a copy only of certain content for up to 14 days back. These options can be altered easily whenever you want and you could even use multiple Dropbox accounts or delete ones you no longer want to use. You should only make sure that the total size of the backups won't exceed the disk space limit which you have on their end. Given that the backed up content could be accessed in a standard folder on your computer, this feature is a useful addition to the daily backups that we'll make of your entire account at least 4 times every single day.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
The Dropbox service is available for all VPS plans
which are ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP. You can easily link the 2 accounts and our system shall start generating copies of your content the same day. If you have ample space within your Dropbox account, you can have all the data copied there each and every day with a maximum of 14 copies. If the space is not sufficient or you don't need everything, you may either pick a smaller number of copies to be saved in your Dropbox account at any given time or you can choose just specific Internet sites or databases to be backed up. With this feature you'll be able to look through your content material for up to 14 days back on your computer, which means more security for any data which you have on the VPS. The service could be disabled with a click at any time if you no longer need to use Dropbox for backups or if you use our backup feature, which is a part of the administration tasks included in the Managed Services upgrade.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans
which are supplied with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel include the Dropbox backup feature by default, thus if you'd like to employ this service, you only have to link the server to your account via the Dropbox section within Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will enable you to select the sites which will be backed up if you don't require the whole content which you have on the server or you simply do not have plenty of free space within your Dropbox account. You can also decide how many copies of the daily backups shall be stored, thus if you opt for the maximum number of fourteen, for example, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for each and every day of the past 2 weeks. Both options could be edited anytime in the event that you change your mind with regards to the content of the number of backups that you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account with ease 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 handy server management tasks which our system admins can perform for you.
