Understand better what Dropbox backups represent and the ways to enable them for your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Different from a web hosting service where you can have a website that's accessible online by entering a domain address, Dropbox enables you to store files, that you can access from their app using a computer or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual Internet site. The service enables you to access your information from any location so long as you log in with the right credentials. As the company allows third-party service providers to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we present you with the chance to produce regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account as long as you've got sufficient space. This shall add one more level of protection for your Internet sites simply because you will always have a copy of any data that you might need and if the app is installed on your personal computer, a copy shall be available not only on their hosting servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Website Hosting
If you wish to take full advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a shared website hosting
account, you'll be able to allow this option with one or two clicks inside your Hepsia CP and our system will start making backups the exact same day. Depending on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and the amount of content you've got on our hosting servers, you could pick the number of different backups which shall be made, ranging from 3 to 14. You'll be able to also choose if backups shall be made simply of the website files or of the databases also and Hepsia will permit you to enable this option for every single website or database independently, so that you can back up precisely the content that you actually need. Allowing the service is a breeze and all it takes is to add your Dropbox account in the corresponding section of Hepsia. You can even add a number of accounts and removing one you no longer want to use takes only a mouse click. You'll be able to use this service in combination with our regular backups which are produced 4 times a day and include all of your files and databases.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All semi-dedicated hosting
accounts set up on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform feature the Dropbox backup function by default, so you'll be able to link an account that you have with them with several clicks. The tool which you will find within the Hepsia hosting Control panel will enable you to pick different options - what Internet site files and databases shall be backed up and what amount of copies should be kept within your Dropbox account. That way you could have a copy only of particular content for up to fourteen days back. These options can be altered with ease at any time and you may even use a number of Dropbox accounts or delete ones you no longer want to use. You should only ensure that the total size of the backups will not exceed the disk space limit you have on their end. Given that the backed up content could be accessed in a regular folder on your PC, this feature is a useful addition to the daily backups which we'll make of your whole account at least four times every day.
Dropbox Backups in VPS
You can use this function with all Linux VPS
we offer as long as you opt for Hepsia for the hosting Control Panel. Your Dropbox account can be linked to the server from the user-friendly interface Hepsia provides and a copy of your info shall be stored in your Dropbox account every day. The maximum amount of copies which you can have at one time is fourteen, consequently if you do not have adequate free space with Dropbox or you have too much content on the VPS, you can either pick a smaller number of copies or you can select just specific websites to be backed up. The latter could be added or eliminated from the backups whenever you want with ease. The Dropbox function shall enable you to get a copy of your content right on your PC every day without doing anything by hand, but you may also consider the backup service that we offer with our Managed Services upgrade given that you'll get a number of other administration tasks with it too.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Hosting
The Dropbox backups are available with all Linux dedicated hosting
purchased with the Hepsia CP and you can link the two accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks via an incredibly user-friendly interface which will enable you to pick the exact content that shall be backed up and the amount of copies which will be available within your Dropbox account at any time. That way you could take advantage of this service in the event that you do not have enough space with Dropbox for the whole content on the server or you simply need merely some of the data. Hepsia will permit you to specify the folders to be backed up and to choose between three and 14 daily copies to be stored, so you can have backups for up to fourteen days back. You can edit these options with a mouse click whenever you want or you may delete the Dropbox account from the CP if you do not want to use it anymore. Alternatively we provide in-house backups too, which you'll be able to get as a standalone service or as an element of the Managed Services package which comes with numerous handy server administration tasks.
