Get to know what Dropbox backups stand for and how to enable them for your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. Different from a web hosting service where you can have a site which is accessible online by inputting a domain address, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access through their application using a personal computer or a smart phone. The files aren't executed, so an html file will be listed and not shown as an actual website. The service permits you to access your information from any location provided that you log in with the right credentials. As the firm allows third-party companies to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we present you with the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the data that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you've got enough space. This will add one more level of security for your sites since you shall always have a copy of any data that you may need and if the application is installed on your personal computer, a copy shall be available not just on their web servers, but also inside a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Website Hosting
You could use Dropbox for backups whatever the shared website hosting package
that you opt for when you sign up and the feature shall be available inside the Hepsia Control Panel provided with all accounts. Linking one or even multiple Dropbox accounts takes simply a couple of mouse clicks and as soon as the connection with our system is created, you could select if all your content shall be backed up there or only certain Internet sites and databases. This depends on the size of the data which you have on our end and how much space you have within your Dropbox account. The amount of backups that you can have ranges from three to fourteen and our system shall generate a new one every day, so you will have a copy of your data for up to 2 weeks back and you shall be able to access them on your PC as conventional folders and files. You can easily change the Internet sites or the number of backups anytime. This functionality is an excellent addition to the backups that we'll keep of your whole content 4 times a day. In case you no longer want your Dropbox account to be linked to our system, you could remove it with only a click within your CP.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Linking a semi-dedicated hosting
account to a Dropbox one is quite simple and takes only several mouse clicks, so if you host your sites on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you wish to have backups in addition to the ones that we generate every day, you'll be able to set everything up very quickly. This is done through the Dropbox section of the Hepsia CP and our system will enable you to pick what shall be backed up - all the information, only particular website folders, only databases or a mix of the two. You'll be able to have between three and 14 daily backups at any given time based upon how much free space you have inside the Dropbox account and how large the sites on our end are. You shall be able to change this number and to include or take away Internet sites at any time and the modifications will take effect the next time our system produces backups. Detaching a Dropbox account is also very easy, so if you no longer need to employ this service, it will take you simply a mouse click to remove your account from our system.
Dropbox Backups in VPS
The Dropbox service is available for all Linux VPS packages
that are purchased with the Hepsia hosting CP. You could easily link the 2 accounts and our system shall start making copies of your data the same day. If you have ample space within your Dropbox account, you can have all of the data copied there daily with a maximum of 14 copies. If the space isn't enough or you do not need everything, you can either opt for a smaller number of copies to be kept within your Dropbox account at one time or you can pick just certain sites or databases to be backed up. With this feature you shall be able to surf your content for up to two weeks back on your laptop or computer, which means more security for any information which you have on the VPS. The service may 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 component of the administration tasks included in the Managed Services upgrade.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Hosting
The Dropbox backups are available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
purchased with the Hepsia Control panel and you'll be able to link the two accounts with a couple of clicks via a really user-friendly interface which shall permit you to choose the exact content that shall be backed up and the number of copies that will be available within your Dropbox account at any time. That way you can take advantage of this service in case you do not have a sufficient amount of space with Dropbox for the entire content on the server or you simply need only some of the data. Hepsia will allow you to specify the folders to be backed up and to pick between three and 14 daily copies to be stored, so you can have backups for up to fourteen days back. You'll be able to change these options with a click whenever you want or you could eliminate the Dropbox account from the CP if you don't intend to use it anymore. As an alternative we provide in-house backups also, which you can get as a standalone service or as a part of the Managed Services package which comes with a variety of handy server administration tasks.
