Get to know what Dropbox backups stand for and the way to enable them for your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. In contrast to an Internet hosting service where you can have a website that is accessible online by entering a domain name, Dropbox enables you to store files, which you can access via their app using a personal computer or a smart phone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not displayed as an actual site. The service permits you to access your content material from any location as long as you log in with the right credentials. As the firm allows third-party firms 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 that you've got enough space. This shall add one more level of protection for your Internet sites as you will always have a copy of any information that you might require and if the app is installed on your computer system, a copy shall be available not just on their hosting servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Hosting
The Dropbox backup feature is accessible with all of our hosting
plans and activating it takes a couple of mouse clicks, so you'll be able to link the account on our end to your Dropbox space in no time. The tool which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting CP shall permit you to pick which Internet sites and databases should be backed up one by one and what number of copies should be generated, the highest number being 14. This way you could have a daily copy of your information for the past two weeks in case you change or delete something that you need. How much content shall be stored inside your Dropbox account and how many copies will be available also depends on the size of the content and the disk space which you have on their end. The function may be enabled or disabled whenever you want and if required, you can quickly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even include multiple accounts and have numerous sites backed up in different accounts.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
Linking a semi-dedicated server
account to a Dropbox one is very simple and takes just several clicks, so if you host your Internet sites on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you would like to have backups in addition to the ones which we create each day, you'll be able to set everything up very quickly. This is done through the Dropbox section of the Hepsia CP and our system will permit you to choose what will be backed up - all of the content, only certain site folders, just databases or a combination of the two. You could have between 3 and fourteen daily backups at a time based on the amount of free space you have within the Dropbox account and how big the Internet sites on our end are. You'll be able to change this number and to add or remove Internet sites at any time and the changes shall take effect the next time our system produces backups. Detaching a Dropbox account is also quite simple, hence if you no longer want to employ this service, it shall take you simply a mouse click to clear out your account from our system.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
The Dropbox service is readily available for all VPS servers
which are purchased with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can easily link the 2 accounts and our system will begin producing copies of your data the same day. If you have sufficient space inside your Dropbox account, you can have all of the content copied there daily with a maximum of 14 copies. If the space isn't enough or you do not need everything, you could either select a smaller number of copies to be kept within your Dropbox account at any given time or you can pick just certain sites or databases to be backed up. With this function you shall be able to browse your content for up to two weeks back on your computer, which means more security for any info that you have on the Virtual private server. The service can be disabled with a click at any time if you no longer need to use Dropbox for backups or if you use our backup feature, which is an element of the administration tasks included inside the Managed Services upgrade.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers
which are supplied with our Hepsia hosting CP incorporate the Dropbox backup function by default, thus if you wish to employ this service, you only have to link the server to your account via the Dropbox section in Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will allow you to select the websites which will be backed up if you don't require the whole content you have on the server or you simply do not have much free space in your Dropbox account. You can also decide how many copies of the everyday backups will be stored, hence if you select the maximum number of 14, for instance, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for each and every day of the past 2 weeks. Both options could be edited whenever you want in the event that you change your mind with regards to the content of the number of backups which you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account easily if you do not want to use it or if you would rather use the backup service which is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other handy server management tasks our system administrators can perform for you.
