Understand better what Dropbox backups represent and the ways to enable them for your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage service, which allows you to store any sort of content. The files are synchronized between all units where the Dropbox application is set up and you can access them through any sort of device, including a smartphone. Unlike a hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for instance, will display as an actual webpage with text and images on it, in Dropbox you will view the content as a list of folders and files. If you already have an account with them or start a new one, you can take full advantage of our totally free service and you can link an Internet hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can create regular backups there. This way you could have a copy of your content on our web servers, on their servers and also on your laptop or computer and you will be able to access it from any device provided that the Dropbox app is installed, which will offer you more safety if something happens with your information, such as an accidental deletion, for instance.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Hosting
You can use Dropbox for backups whatever the cloud hosting service
that you opt for when you sign up and the function shall be available within the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts. Linking one or even multiple Dropbox accounts takes just a couple of mouse clicks and as soon as the connection with our system is set up, you can pick if all your information will be backed up there or just particular Internet sites and databases. This depends on the size of the data which you have on our end and what amount of space you have inside your Dropbox account. The number of backups that you may have ranges from three to fourteen and our system shall create a new one each day, so you will have a copy of your files for up to 2 weeks back and you'll be able to access them on your laptop or computer as regular files and folders. You can change the Internet sites or the number of backups at any time. This functionality is a great addition to the backups which we will keep of your entire content 4 times per day. Provided you no longer want your Dropbox account to be linked to our system, you could remove it with a mouse click within your CP.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server
accounts set up on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform feature the Dropbox backup feature by default, so you can link an account that you have with them with a couple of clicks. The tool which you will find within the Hepsia hosting Control panel will allow you to pick different options - what site files and databases shall be backed up and what amount of copies should be kept inside your Dropbox account. In this way you can have a copy just of specific content for up to two weeks back. These options could be changed with ease anytime and you can even use a number of Dropbox accounts or delete ones that you no longer want to use. You should only make sure that the total size of the backups does not exceed the disk space limit which you have on their end. Because the backed up content could be accessed in a standard folder on your personal computer, this function is a practical addition to the daily backups that we'll generate of your whole account at least 4 times daily.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
The Dropbox service is accessible for all VPS servers
that are acquired with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You could easily link the 2 accounts and our system will begin creating copies of your content the same day. If you have ample space in your Dropbox account, you can have all of the content material copied there each and every day with a maximum of fourteen copies. If the space isn't sufficient or you do not need everything, you may either pick a smaller number of copies to be kept inside your Dropbox account at any given time or you can select just particular Internet sites or databases to be backed up. With this feature you'll be able to check out your content for up to 14 days back on your PC, which means more protection for any info which you have on the VPS. The service could be disabled with a mouse click at any time if you no longer wish to use Dropbox for backups or if you use our backup feature, which is an element of the administration tasks included in the Managed Services upgrade.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers
which are supplied with our Hepsia hosting CP incorporate the Dropbox backup feature by default, so if you would like to employ this service, you just have to link the server to your account through the Dropbox section within Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will allow you to select the websites that'll be backed up if you don't need the entire content that you have on the server or you simply do not have much free space in your Dropbox account. You could also select how many copies of the everyday backups shall be kept, consequently if you select the maximum number of 14, for instance, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for each day of the past fourteen days. Both options could be edited at any time in the event that you change your mind regarding the content of the number of backups you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account effortlessly if you don't want to use it or if you prefer to use the backup service that's a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other useful server management tasks that our system admins can perform for you.
