Understand better what Dropbox backups signify and how to activate them from your hosting account.
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Different from a web hosting service where you can have an Internet site that is accessible online by inputting a domain name, Dropbox permits you to store files, which you can access through their app using a personal computer or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not displayed as an actual website. The service enables you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the correct credentials. Since the company allows third-party service providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we present you with the chance to generate regular automatic backups of the data you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you have enough space. This will add one more level of protection for your sites since you shall always have a copy of any information that you may need and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy shall be available not just on their servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Hosting
If you would like to make the most of our Dropbox backup service and you've got a cloud hosting
account, you can allow this option with one or two clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel and our system will start making backups the same day. Depending on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and just how much content you've got on our web servers, you can select the number of different backups that will be generated, ranging from three to 14. You may also decide if backups will be generated only of the Internet site files or of the databases too and Hepsia will allow you to enable this option for every website or database separately, so that you can back up precisely the content you actually need. Allowing the service is super easy and all it takes is to add your Dropbox account within the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may even include a number of accounts and removing one which you no longer want to use takes simply a mouse click. You can use this service in combination with our regular backups that 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 hosting platform feature the Dropbox backup function by default, so you could link an account that you have with them with a couple of clicks. The tool which you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to pick different options - what site files and databases will be backed up and what number of copies have to be kept in your Dropbox account. That way you can have a copy just of particular content for up to 14 days back. These options could be modified effortlessly at any time and you can even use numerous Dropbox accounts or delete ones you no longer want to use. You should just make sure that the total size of the backups doesn't exceed the disk space limit which you have on their end. Since the backed up content can be accessed in a regular folder on your PC, this feature is a handy addition to the daily backups that we shall make of your entire account at least four times every single day.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
You can use this feature with all VPS servers
which we offer provided that you choose Hepsia for the hosting CP. Your Dropbox account could be linked to the server via the user-friendly interface Hepsia includes and a copy of your content shall be stored inside your Dropbox account every single day. The maximum number of copies that you can have at one time is fourteen, thus if you do not have adequate free space with Dropbox or you simply have too much content on the Virtual private server, you can either opt for a smaller number of copies or you can select just certain websites to be backed up. The latter could be included or removed from the backups whenever you want with ease. The Dropbox function shall allow you to get a copy of your content right on your PC every day without doing anything manually, but you may also consider the backup service we offer with our Managed Services upgrade given that you will get quite a few other administration tasks with it too.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated web hosting plans
which are offered with our Hepsia hosting CP incorporate the Dropbox backup function by default, consequently if you would like to use this service, you just have to link the server to your account from the Dropbox section within Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will allow you to choose the Internet sites which will be backed up in case that you don't require the whole content you have on the server or you simply do not have a lot of free space inside your Dropbox account. You'll be able to also choose how many copies of the daily backups shall be kept, so if you opt for the maximum number of fourteen, for example, you shall have a copy of your files and databases for every day of the past two weeks. Both options can be edited anytime if you change your mind regarding the content of the number of backups that you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account with ease if you don't need to use it or if you would rather use the backup service that's a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other practical server management tasks which our system administrators can perform for you.
