Understand better what Dropbox backups signify and the way to activate them for your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike a hosting service where you can have a website that is accessible online by typing a domain, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access from their application using a computer or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file will be listed and not presented as an actual web page. The service allows you to access your information from any location so long as you log in with the proper credentials. Because the firm allows third-party service providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we offer you the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got enough space. This shall include one more level of security for your sites as you will always have a copy of any data that you may require and if the application 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 Shared Web Hosting
You can use the Dropbox backup feature with all shared web hosting services that we offer and at no extra cost. Using the respective section within the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to link a Dropbox account with a few mouse clicks and the backups will start being created there the same day. You can pick the websites 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 can pick just the content that you actually need. You can also select the number of backups that'll be kept in your Dropbox account, ranging from three to fourteen, so you could have a daily copy of your data going 14 days back. Incorporating a number of accounts or deleting one which you no longer want to use is just as simple. The Dropbox backups can be used together with the daily backups we keep of all your data in the event that you would like to have a copy on your personal computer through the Dropbox application.
