Get to know what Dropbox backups stand for and how to activate them for your hosting account.
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Different from an Internet hosting service where you can have an Internet site that is accessible online by typing a domain name, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access from their app using a computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not presented as an actual website. The service enables you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the proper credentials. As the firm allows third-party providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the chance to generate regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you've got sufficient space. This will add one more level of security for your sites because you shall always have a copy of any information that you could require and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy shall be available not only on their web servers, but also inside a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Website Hosting
The Dropbox backup feature is offered with all of our website hosting
plans and activating it takes a few mouse clicks, so you could link the account on our end to your Dropbox space without difficulty. The tool which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel shall allow you to choose which Internet sites and databases should be backed up independently and what number of copies should be made, the highest number being fourteen. In this way you could have a daily copy of your information for the past 14 days in case you alter or delete something that you need. How much content will be stored in your Dropbox account and how many copies shall be available also is determined by the size of the content and the disk space you have on their end. The function can 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 add numerous accounts and have various Internet sites backed up in different accounts.
