Find out more about the Dropbox Backup service provided inside the Hepsia Control Panel and see how to use it.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, which has been gaining a lot in popularity recently as it enables you to access any content stored on its hosting servers via any device provided that their app is installed. The data is synchronized between all units, which means you can easily access it at any time. Dropbox doesn't offer web hosting services, hence if you upload an html file it shall not appear as a site and won't be executed. This service is used just for storing data and we have taken advantage of the fact that they provide an API to third-party businesses to set up a backup service on our end, which you can use if you host your sites on our servers. With this extra feature you won't have tobe worried about your content since you shall always have a copy of your Internet sites on the Dropbox servers and on your computer system in the event that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files by mistake, and so on.

The tool which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP shall permit you to pick which sites and databases should be backed up individually and what amount of copies must be made, the maximum amount being fourteen. In this way you could have a daily copy of your information for the past 14 days in case that you alter or delete something that you need. How much content shall be stored in your Dropbox account and how many copies will be available also depends upon the size of the content and the disk space which you have on their end. The function may be enabled or disabled at any time and if needed, you can easily switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even incorporate numerous accounts and have different Internet sites backed up in different accounts.

All semi-dedicated hosting
accounts created on our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform feature the Dropbox backup function by default, so you could link an account that you have with them with several clicks. The tool which you will find in the Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to select different options - what site files and databases shall be backed up and what number of copies ought to be kept in your Dropbox account. Thus you'll be able to have a copy only of specific content for up to 14 days back. These options can be altered with ease at any time and you could even use multiple Dropbox accounts or delete ones that you no longer want to use. You should just ensure that the total size of the backups will not exceed the disk space limit that you have on their end. Since the backed up content could be accessed in a standard folder on your computer, this feature is a handy addition to the daily backups that we'll create of your whole account at least 4 times daily.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Hosting

obtained with the Hepsia CP and you could link the two accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks via a very user-friendly interface that shall enable you to select the exact content that will be backed up and the number of copies which will be available in your Dropbox account at any moment. This way you can take advantage of this service if you don't have a sufficient amount of space with Dropbox for the entire content on the server or you simply need just some of the content. Hepsia will permit you to specify the folders to be backed up and to pick between 3 and fourteen daily copies to be stored, so you could have backups for up to fourteen days back. You'll be able to change these options with a click whenever you choose or you can delete the Dropbox account from the CP if you do not intend to use it anymore. As a substitute we supply in-house backups too, which you could get as a standalone service or as a part of the Managed Services package which comes with a variety of handy server administration tasks.
