Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Different from a hosting service where you can have a site which is accessible online by entering a domain address, Dropbox enables you to store files, that you can access via their application using a computer or a smart phone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not displayed as an actual Internet page. The service allows you to access your data from any location provided that you log in with the proper credentials. As the firm allows third-party firms to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the information you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you have enough space. This will add one more level of security for your sites simply because you will always have a copy of any information that you may need and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy will be available not only on their servers, but also inside a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Cloud Hosting

If you wish to make the most of our Dropbox backup service and you've got a cloud hosting account, you could enable this option with a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel and our system will start generating backups the very same day. Based upon the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and how much content you've got on our hosting servers, you'll be able to pick the number of different backups which shall be made, ranging from three to 14. You may also choose if backups shall be made only of the Internet site files or of the databases also and Hepsia will allow you to enable this option for every site or database individually, so you can back up only the content that you actually need. Allowing the service is a breeze and all it takes is to include your Dropbox account in the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may also incorporate multiple accounts and removing one that you no longer want to use takes just a mouse click. You'll be able to use this service together with our regular backups which are produced four times a day and incorporate all your files and databases.

Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated servers, you'll be able to take advantage of the Dropbox backup function effortlessly as linking the 2 accounts takes no more than a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia CP, which is used for the management of the semi-dedicated accounts. Dependant upon the total size of the content that you have on our end, the space quota of your Dropbox account and the information which you want to have, you'll be able to decide if your entire account shall be backed up or only certain Internet sites and databases. Furthermore, you could select the amount of daily backups that will be kept within your Dropbox account at one time. The number ranges from three to 14 and could be changed in either direction whenever you want. The Dropbox account can be removed from our system with only a click if you no longer want to use the service, although it comes quite handy in caseyou want to get a copy of your files automatically on your personal computer on top of the full backups that we keep on a daily basis on our end.

Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers

You can use this function with all VPS servers which we offer as long as you pick Hepsia for the hosting Control Panel. Your Dropbox account can be linked to the server via the user-friendly interface Hepsia provides and a copy of your content shall be stored within your Dropbox account on a daily basis. The maximum amount of copies that you can have at one time is 14, thus if you do not have sufficient free space with Dropbox or you simply have too much content on the VPS, you can either opt for a smaller number of copies or you could pick just certain sites to be backed up. The latter could be included or removed from the backups at any time with ease. The Dropbox function will permit you to get a copy of your content right on your personal computer every day without doing anything manually, but you may also consider the backup service that we offer with our Managed Services upgrade considering that you'll get several other administration tasks with it also.

Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that are set up with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel include the Dropbox backup feature by default, thus if you'd like to use this service, you only have to link the server to your account from the Dropbox section within Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will enable you to choose the Internet sites which will be backed up if you do not need the entire content you have on the server or you just don't have a lot of free space in your Dropbox account. You'll be able to also pick how many copies of the day-to-day backups will be stored, hence if you opt for the maximum number of fourteen, for instance, you will have a copy of your files and databases for every single day of the past 2 weeks. Both options could be edited whenever you want if you change your mind regarding the content of the number of backups which you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account effortlessly if you don't want to use it or if you prefer to use the backup service that is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other beneficial server management tasks that our system admins can perform for you.
