Learn more about the Dropbox Backup service supplied inside the Hepsia Control Panel and see how to use it.
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have a site that is accessible online by inputting a domain, Dropbox enables you to store files, that you can access from their application 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 site. The service permits you to access your data from any location so long as you log in with the proper credentials. Since the firm allows third-party providers to use their API, we have 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 have sufficient space. This will add one more level of protection for your sites because you shall always have a copy of any data that you could need and if the application is installed on your computer, a copy shall be available not just on their hosting servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Website Hosting
The Dropbox backup feature is accessible with all of our shared website hosting solutions and enabling it takes a couple of mouse clicks, so you could link the account on our end to your Dropbox space without difficulty. The tool that you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to select which sites and databases should be backed up independently and how many copies should be made, the biggest amount being 14. This way you'll be able to have a daily copy of your information for the past two weeks in case you modify or delete something that you need. How much content will be stored in your Dropbox account and how many copies will be available also is determined by the size of the data and the disk space which you have on their end. The function can be enabled or disabled anytime and if required, you'll be able to effortlessly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even add multiple accounts and have various Internet sites backed up in different accounts.
