Understand better what Dropbox backups signify and how to activate them for your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. In contrast to an Internet hosting service where you can have an Internet site that's accessible online by inputting a domain name, Dropbox permits you to store files, which you can access via their app using a PC or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not shown as an actual web page. The service permits you to access your data from any location provided that you log in with the right credentials. Since the firm allows third-party service providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we give you the opportunity to produce regular automatic backups of the info that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got enough space. This shall incorporate one more level of protection for your sites simply because you shall always have a copy of any information that you could require and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy shall be available not just on their hosting servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use the Dropbox backup feature with all cloud web hosting plans
we offer and at no extra cost. Through the respective section within the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to link a Dropbox account with a few clicks and the backups will start being created there the same day. You can pick the sites and databases that shall be copied there separately, so if you have plenty of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you'll be able to select only the content which you really need. You could also pick the number of backups which will be kept in your Dropbox account, ranging from 3 to 14, so you can have a daily copy of your content going two weeks back. Incorporating several accounts or deleting one which you no longer want to use is just as easy. The Dropbox backups could be used along with the daily backups that we keep of all your information just in case that you would like to have a copy on your laptop or computer through the Dropbox app.

In addition, you could pick the amount of daily backups that will be kept inside your Dropbox account at any given time. The number ranges from three to 14 and can be altered in either direction at any moment. The Dropbox account can be eliminated from our system with simply a click if you no longer wish to use the service, although it comes very handy ifyou wish to get a copy of your files automatically on your personal computer aside from the full backups which we produce on a daily basis on our end.

There are several customizable options - the number of daily backups that you will have at any moment, ranging from 3 to 14, and the information that will be backed up. The latter option will permit you to choose if our system shall copy everything or only particular sites and databases, so you can get just the info that you really need, specifically if the free space in your Dropbox account isn't enough for a number of backups with significant size.

This way you can easily take advantage of this service in the event that you do not have sufficient space with Dropbox for the entire content on the server or you simply need merely some of the content. Hepsia will allow you to specify the folders to be backed up and to pick between 3 and fourteen daily copies to be kept, so you'll be able to have backups for up to fourteen days back.
