Find out more about the Dropbox Backup service provided inside the Hepsia Control Panel and see how to use it.
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Different from an Internet hosting service where you can have a website which is accessible online by inputting a domain, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access from their app using a PC or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not displayed as an actual Internet page. The service permits you to access your content from any location as long as you log in with the proper credentials. Because the company allows third-party providers to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the opportunity to create regular automatic backups of the info that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you've got enough space. This will include one more level of security for your websites because you will always have a copy of any info that you might need and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy will be available not only on their servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Hosting
If you choose to take advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a hosting account, you can allow this option with a few mouse clicks in 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 servers, you could pick the number of different backups that'll be made, ranging from three to 14. You could also choose if backups will be created simply of the site files or of the databases as well and Hepsia will allow you to enable this option for each website or database separately, so that you can back up just the content that you actually need. Activating the service is super easy and all it takes is to incorporate your Dropbox account within the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may even add multiple accounts and removing one that you no longer want to use takes just a click. You could use this service in addition to our regular backups which are created four times a day and incorporate all your files and databases.
