Understand better what Dropbox backups stand for and the ways to enable them for your hosting account.
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Unlike a web hosting service where you can have a site which is accessible online by typing a domain name, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access from their app using a PC or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not displayed as an actual Internet site. The service allows you to access your information from any location so long as you log in with the right credentials. Since the firm allows third-party firms to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the chance to produce regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got enough space. This shall incorporate one more level of security for your websites simply because you shall always have a copy of any info that you could need and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy will be available not only on their web servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Website Hosting
You can use the Dropbox backup function with all website hosting plans
which we offer and at no extra charge. Through the respective section inside the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to link a Dropbox account with a couple of mouse clicks and the backups will start being generated there the same day. You can select the Internet sites and databases which will be copied there independently, so if you have loads of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you could pick just the content that you really need. You can also choose the number of backups which will be kept inside your Dropbox account, ranging from three to fourteen, so you'll be able to have a daily copy of your content going two weeks back. Adding numerous accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is equally easy. The Dropbox backups could be used together with the daily backups which we keep of all your info in the event that you would like to have a copy on your personal computer via the Dropbox application.
