Understand better what Dropbox backups represent and the ways to enable them from your hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity lately as it enables you to access any content stored on its web servers through any device provided their software is set up. The information is synchronized between all devices, so that you can access it anytime. Dropbox does not offer web hosting services, thus if you upload an html file it will not show up as a website and will not be executed. This particular service is used exclusively for storing data and we have taken advantage of the fact that they offer an API to third-party firms to create a backup service on our end, which you could use if you host your websites on our hosting servers. With this additional function you'll not need tobe worried about your content due to the fact that you shall always have a copy of your websites on the Dropbox servers and on your PC in case that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files by accident, and so on.
Dropbox Backups in Web Hosting
If you would like to take advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a web hosting
account, you could permit this option with a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel and our system will start generating backups the exact same day. Based on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and how much content you've got on our web servers, you could choose the number of different backups which will be generated, ranging from three to fourteen. You may also choose if backups shall be made simply of the site files or of the databases also and Hepsia will permit you to enable this option for each website or database independently, so you can back up just the content which you actually need. Allowing the service is quite simple and all it takes is to include your Dropbox account inside the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may even incorporate several accounts and removing one that you no longer want to use takes just a click. You'll be able to use this service in addition to our regular backups which are made four times a day and include all of your files and databases.
