Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to an Internet hosting service where you can have a site that's accessible online by entering a domain, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access through their application using a PC or a smart phone. The files aren't executed, so an html file will be listed and not presented as an actual Internet page. The service allows you to access your content from any location so long as you log in with the correct credentials. As the company allows third-party providers 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 information you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got sufficient space. This will add one more level of security for your websites simply because you shall always have a copy of any information that you may need and if the app is installed on your computer, a copy will be available not only on their servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Web Hosting
If you want to make the most of our Dropbox backup service and you've got a web hosting account, you can enable this option with a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia CP and our system will start producing backups the exact same day. Depending on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and how much content you have on our web servers, you can choose the number of different backups that'll be generated, ranging from 3 to fourteen. You may also decide if backups will be created only of the website files or of the databases also and Hepsia will permit you to enable this option for every single Internet site or database independently, so that you can back up just the content which you actually need. Enabling the service is quite simple and all it takes is to include your Dropbox account within the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may also incorporate several accounts and removing one that you no longer want to use takes only a click. You'll be able to use this service together with our regular backups that are made 4 times a day and include all your files and databases.
