Get to know what Dropbox backups symbolize and how to enable them for your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity recently as it enables you to access any content kept on its hosting servers via any device provided their app is set up. The data is synchronized between all devices, so you will be able to access it anytime. Dropbox doesn't offer Internet hosting services, so if you upload an html file it shall not appear as a web page and won't be executed. This service is used just for storing data and we have taken advantage of the fact that they offer an API to third-party companies to set up a backup service on our end, which you'll be able to use if you host your websites on our hosting servers. With this extra feature you will not have tostress about your content since you will always have a copy of your Internet sites on the Dropbox servers and on your computer system in case that something happens - a script update crash, deleting files accidentally, and so forth.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Website Hosting
The Dropbox backup function is available with all of our cloud website hosting
solutions and activating it takes several mouse clicks, so you are able to link the account on our end to your Dropbox space effortlessly. The tool which you'll find in the Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to choose which websites and databases should be backed up one by one and what amount of copies has to be made, the maximum amount being 14. Thus you could have a daily copy of your information for the past 2 weeks in the event that 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 depends upon the size of the data and the disk space that you have on their end. The function may be enabled or disabled whenever you want and if required, you could quickly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even include a number of accounts and have different websites backed up in different accounts.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers
, you could take advantage of the Dropbox backup feature with ease as linking the two accounts takes no more than several clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which is employed for the management of the semi-dedicated accounts. Based on the total size of the content that you have on our end, the space quota of your Dropbox account and the data that you would like to have, you can decide if your entire account will be backed up or only particular Internet sites and databases. Also, you can select the amount of daily backups that will be kept in your Dropbox account at any moment. The amount ranges from three to fourteen and may be adjusted in either direction at any moment. The Dropbox account can be eliminated from our system with only a click if you no longer want to use the service, although it comes really handy in caseyou would like to get a copy of your files automatically on your personal computer in addition to the full backups which we generate on a daily basis on our end.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
You'll be able to use this feature with all VPS plans
which we offer provided you select Hepsia for the hosting CP. Your Dropbox account can be linked to the server from the user-friendly interface Hepsia comes with and a copy of your data will be stored inside your Dropbox account every day. The maximum number of copies which you can have at one time is 14, thus if you don't have sufficient free space with Dropbox or you simply have too much content on the Virtual private server, you can either choose a smaller number of copies or you can choose just certain websites to be backed up. The latter can be included or removed from the backups at any time with ease. The Dropbox function will enable you to get a copy of your content right on your PC every day without doing anything manually, but you may also consider the backup service that we offer with our Managed Services upgrade given that you will get numerous other administration tasks with it also.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated web hosting plans
which are supplied with our Hepsia hosting CP incorporate the Dropbox backup function by default, consequently if you wish to employ this service, you just have to link the server to your account via the Dropbox section inside Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will permit you to select the Internet sites which will be backed up in case that you don't require the entire content that you have on the server or you simply don't have much free space within your Dropbox account. You'll be able to also select how many copies of the daily backups will be stored, so if you select the maximum number of 14, for example, you shall have a copy of your files and databases for each day of the past 2 weeks. Both options could be edited whenever you want if you change your mind with regards to the content of the number of backups which you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account effortlessly if you do not want to use it or if you would rather use the backup service which is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other practical server management tasks our system administrators can perform for you.
