Understand better what Dropbox backups signify and the ways to enable them for your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, which has been gaining a lot in popularity nowadays as it enables you to access any content kept on its servers from any device provided their application is installed. The content is synchronized between all devices, so you can access it at any time. Dropbox doesn't offer Internet hosting services, hence if you upload an html file it won't display as a site and won't be executed. This service is used exclusively for storing info and we've taken advantage of the fact that they supply an API to third-party businesses to create a backup service on our end, that you can use if you host your sites on our servers. With this additional function you won't need toworry about your content since you'll always have a copy of your sites on the Dropbox servers and on your laptop or computer just in case that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files accidentally, etcetera.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Web Hosting
If you want to take full advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a cloud web hosting
account, you could enable this option with one or two clicks within your Hepsia CP and our system will start creating backups the very same day. Depending on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and how much content you have on our web servers, you can choose the number of different backups that'll be generated, ranging from 3 to fourteen. You may also choose if backups will be generated only of the site files or of the databases as well and Hepsia will allow you to enable this option for every website or database separately, to ensure you can back up precisely the content you actually need. Activating the service is quite simple and all it takes is to incorporate your Dropbox account in the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may even include multiple accounts and removing one which you no longer want to use takes only a mouse click. You'll be able to use this service along with our regular backups which are made four times a day and include all your files and databases.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All semi-dedicated hosting
accounts created on our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform include the Dropbox backup function by default, so you'll be able to link an account that you have with them with several mouse clicks. The tool which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting Control panel will permit you to choose different options - what website files and databases will be backed up and how many copies must be kept in your Dropbox account. In this way you'll be able to have a copy just of specific content for up to 2 weeks back. These options could be altered easily whenever you want and you could even use numerous Dropbox accounts or delete ones that you no longer want to use. You should only make certain that the total size of the backups will not exceed the disk space limit which you have on their end. Since the backed up content could be accessed in a conventional folder on your personal computer, this function is a practical addition to the daily backups that we will create of your whole account at least 4 times each day.
Dropbox Backups in VPS
All virtual private server
accounts that are set up with our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel come with the Dropbox backup feature by default, thus if you want to take advantage of this function, you only need to link the 2 accounts with several mouse clicks and our system will begin making copies of your content every day. You'll be able to pick what will be backed up - particular domain folders and databases or the whole data, as well as how many copies shall be saved on the Dropbox service - from 3 to 14. These options are determined by the size of the Internet sites on the VPS and the free space which you have with Dropbox and they could be changed anytime, offering you more flexibility. The feature could be disabled with simply a click in the respective section of Hepsia if you no longer wish to use your Dropbox account for backups. We also offer a conventional backup of your content with the Managed Services upgrade, which includes a range of other administration services.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that are offered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel include the Dropbox backup feature by default, therefore if you wish to use this service, you just have to link the server to your account using the Dropbox section in Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will permit you to select the websites that'll be backed up in case that you do not need the whole content that you have on the server or you just do not have a lot of free space in your Dropbox account. You'll be able to also decide how many copies of the daily backups will be stored, so if you pick the maximum number of 14, for example, you will have a copy of your files and databases for each day of the past fourteen days. Both options could be edited whenever you want in case you change your mind in regards to the content of the number of backups that you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account without difficulty if you don't want to use it or if you want to use the backup service which is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other practical server management tasks that our system administrators can perform for you.
