Get to know what Dropbox backups stand for and ways to activate them from your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage service, that permits you to store any type of info. The files are synchronized between all computers where the Dropbox app is set up and you are able to access them from any device, even a smart phone. Unlike a hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for instance, shall display as an actual Internet page with text and images on it, in Dropbox you'll see the content as a list of folders and files. If you have an account with them or open a new one, you can take advantage of our complimentary service and you can link a web hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can create regular backups there. In this way you could have a copy of your info on our web servers, on their servers and also on your PC and you'll be able to access it from any machine provided that the Dropbox app is set up, which will give you more safety in the event that something happens with your data, like an accidental deletion, for example.
Dropbox Backups in Web Hosting
You could use Dropbox for backups regardless of the web hosting service
that you choose when you sign up and the function shall be available within the Hepsia Control Panel included with all accounts. Linking one or even multiple Dropbox accounts takes only a few mouse clicks and once the connection with our system is set up, you can pick if all of your information will be backed up there or just specific websites and databases. This varies according to the size of the data that you have on our end and the amount of space you have in your Dropbox account. The number of backups which you may have ranges from 3 to 14 and our system shall generate a new one every single day, so you could have a copy of your info for up to fourteen days back and you will be able to access them on your personal computer as regular folders and files. You can change the Internet sites or the number of backups at any time. This functionality is an outstanding addition to the backups which we'll keep of your entire content four times a day. Provided you no longer want your Dropbox account to be linked to our system, you'll be able to remove it with simply a mouse click in your Control Panel.

account to a Dropbox one is quite simple and takes just a few mouse clicks, so if you host your websites on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and you wish to have backups in addition to the ones which we make on a daily basis, you can set everything up in no time.

Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
The Dropbox service is accessible for all VPS service
which are ordered with the Hepsia hosting CP. You could easily link the 2 accounts and our system will begin generating copies of your information the same day. If you have enough space inside your Dropbox account, you can have all the content copied there each and every day with a maximum of fourteen copies. If the space isn't adequate or you don't need everything, you can either select a smaller number of copies to be stored in your Dropbox account at a time or you can choose only particular sites or databases to be backed up. With this feature you shall be able to surf your data for up to 14 days back on your laptop or computer, which means more protection for any information you have on the Virtual private server. The service could be disabled with a click at any time if you no longer wish to use Dropbox for backups or if you use our backup feature, which is a component of the administration tasks included inside the Managed Services upgrade.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated servers
which are offered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with the Dropbox backup function by default, consequently if you wish to use this service, you only have to link the server to your account from the Dropbox section within Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will allow you to select the sites that'll be backed up in case that you don't need the entire content you have on the server or you just do not have plenty of free space inside your Dropbox account. You'll be able to also choose how many copies of the day-to-day backups shall be stored, so if you pick the maximum number of fourteen, for instance, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for every single day of the past 2 weeks. Both options can be edited anytime if you change your mind regarding the content of the number of backups which you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account without difficulty if you don't need to use it or if you want to use the backup service that's a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other helpful server management tasks which our system admins can perform for you.
