What exactly does the Dropbox backup procedure involve? How to copy your hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to a hosting service where you can have an Internet site that's accessible online by entering a domain, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access through their application using a computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not displayed as an actual Internet site. The service enables you to access your data from any location provided that you log in with the right credentials. Because the company allows third-party firms to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we offer you the chance to create regular automatic backups of the data that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you have sufficient space. This shall include one more level of security for your sites simply because you shall always have a copy of any data that you may require and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy will be available not only on their servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting
If you would like to take full advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a shared hosting account, you can permit this option with a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia CP and our system will start producing backups the same day. Depending on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and the amount of content you have on our servers, you could choose the number of different backups that shall be made, ranging from three to fourteen. You may also choose if backups will be generated only of the Internet site files or of the databases too and Hepsia will allow you to enable this option for each site or database separately, so that you can back up only the content you actually need. Activating the service is a breeze and all it takes is to add your Dropbox account within the corresponding section of Hepsia. You can even include several accounts and removing one you no longer want to use takes only a mouse click. You could use this service along with our regular backups that are created 4 times a day and include all your files and databases.
