What precisely does the Dropbox backup procedure involve? How to save your hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have an Internet site that is accessible online by typing a domain name, Dropbox enables you to store files, that you can access via their app using a PC or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not presented as an actual Internet page. The service permits you to access your data from any location so long as you log in with the proper credentials. Since the firm allows third-party providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we present you with the chance to create regular automatic backups of the information you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you have sufficient space. This will incorporate one more level of protection for your sites simply because you shall always have a copy of any data that you may require and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy shall be available not only on their hosting servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Website Hosting
You'll be able to use the Dropbox backup feature with all cloud website hosting services
that we offer and at no extra cost. Using the respective section within the Hepsia CP, you could link a Dropbox account with several mouse clicks and the backups will start being generated there the same day. You'll be able to choose the sites and databases that will be copied there individually, 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'll be able to also pick the number of backups that'll be kept within your Dropbox account, ranging from three to 14, so you'll be able to have a daily copy of your data going two weeks back. Incorporating a number of accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is just as easy. The Dropbox backups could be used along with the daily backups which we keep of all your information in case that you would like to have a copy on your personal computer via the Dropbox application.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server
accounts created on our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform come with the Dropbox backup function by default, so you'll be able to link an account that you have with them with one or two mouse clicks. The tool that you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to select different options - what website files and databases shall be backed up and how many copies have to be kept inside your Dropbox account. That way you could have a copy just of specific content for up to two weeks back. These options can be changed easily whenever you want and you can even use several Dropbox accounts or delete ones which you no longer want to use. You should just ensure that the total size of the backups does not exceed the disk space limit that you have on their end. As the backed up content can be accessed in a conventional folder on your computer, this feature is a useful addition to the daily backups that we will make of your entire account at least 4 times daily.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
The Dropbox service is available for all VPS servers
which are obtained with the Hepsia hosting CP. You can easily link the two accounts and our system will begin generating copies of your information the same day. If you have ample space inside your Dropbox account, you can have all of the data copied there on a daily basis with a maximum of fourteen copies. If the space is not adequate or you don't need everything, you can either pick a smaller number of copies to be saved inside your Dropbox account at a time or you can choose only certain websites or databases to be backed up. With this function you shall be able to look through your content for up to 14 days back on your computer, which means more security for any information that you have on the VPS. The service may be disabled with a mouse click at any time if you no longer want to use Dropbox for backups or if you use our backup feature, which is a part of the administration tasks included inside the Managed Services upgrade.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
You can easily link a Dropbox account to any of our dedicated servers
provided that you acquire it with the in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is really simple and takes just several clicks, so you can have a copy of your content material both on the Dropbox servers and on your personal computer the very same day you link the 2 accounts. If you don't have much space in Dropbox or you have a great deal of content on the dedicated server and you do not require all of it, you'll be able to choose specific domain or subdomain folders and databases to be backed up as well as the amount of copies to be saved at the same time. Our system is very flexible, thus you can change the Internet sites and the number of daily backups whenever you want. The Dropbox account can be disconnected at any time, therefore if you no longer would like to employ the service or you have decided to use our in-house backup service alongside all other administration tasks we offer with our Managed Services upgrade, you can turn off this function with only a click.
