Learn more about the Dropbox Backup service offered inside the Hepsia Control Panel and see how to use it.
Dropbox is a file storage service, that permits you to store any type of information. The files are synchronized between all machines in which the Dropbox app is installed and you could access them from any kind of device, even a smart phone. Unlike an Internet hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for example, will show as an actual Internet page with text and images on it, in Dropbox you'll view the content as a list of folders and files. If you already have an account with them or start a new one, you could take advantage of our absolutely free service and you can link a web hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can generate regular backups there. In this way you can have a copy of your information on our web servers, on their servers and also on your computer and you will be able to access it from any gadget so long as the Dropbox application is set up, which will provide you with more protection if something happens with your files, such as an accidental deletion, for instance.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to use the Dropbox backup feature with all shared web hosting services
we offer and at no extra charge. Using the respective section in the Hepsia CP, you are able to link a Dropbox account with a couple of mouse clicks and the backups will start being generated there the same day. You could choose the websites and databases that will be copied there separately, so if you have a lot of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you can choose only the content which you actually need. You can also pick the number of backups that will be kept in your Dropbox account, ranging from three to fourteen, so you can have a daily copy of your content going 14 days back. Adding several accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is just as effortless. The Dropbox backups may be used in addition to the daily backups we keep of all your info in case that you would like to have a copy on your laptop or computer via the Dropbox app.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server
accounts created on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform include the Dropbox backup feature by default, so you can link an account that you have with them with a few mouse clicks. The tool which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control panel will enable you to choose different options - what Internet site files and databases shall be backed up and what number of copies must be kept in your Dropbox account. Thus you could have a copy just of specific content for up to two weeks back. These options can be altered easily anytime and you could even use several Dropbox accounts or delete ones that you no longer want to use. You should only make sure that the total size of the backups won't exceed the disk space limit you have on their end. Given that the backed up content could be accessed in a regular folder on your personal computer, this feature is a practical addition to the daily backups which we will make of your entire account at least 4 times each day.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
The Dropbox service is readily available for all Linux VPS web hosting service
which are obtained with the Hepsia hosting CP. You could easily link the two accounts and our system shall start generating copies of your content the same day. If you have enough space in your Dropbox account, you can have all the data copied there daily with a maximum of 14 copies. If the space isn't sufficient or you do not need everything, you could either select a smaller number of copies to be saved inside your Dropbox account at any given time or you can select only specific sites or databases to be backed up. With this feature you will be able to check out your information for up to 14 days back on your personal computer, which means more protection 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 component of the administration tasks included within the Managed Services upgrade.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
It will take you just a couple of clicks to link your Dropbox account to a dedicated server
from our company if the machine is set up with our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel. The easy-to-use interface shall give you access to numerous options such as what exactly to be backed up and how many copies to be saved at the same time inside the Dropbox account. This flexibility is useful in case you have loads of information on the server and you do not require everything or in case the free disk space that you have within the Dropbox account is limited. You can pick individual domain and subdomain folders or even just individual databases to be copied to their servers every single day and the amount of copies which you can have is between three and 14. Both options can be adjusted according to your needs at any time and will take effect the next time our system creates the backups. The Dropbox account can be erased with a click and if you no longer want to use it or you don't have one, you could also consider the backup service that we offer with the Managed Services upgrade alongside many other tasks that'll make the management of your dedicated hosting server much more easier.
