What precisely does the Dropbox backup procedure involve? How to save your hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Different from an Internet hosting service where you can have an Internet site that is accessible online by typing a domain name, Dropbox enables you to store files, that you can access from their application using a PC or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual Internet site. The service enables you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the proper credentials. Because the firm allows third-party companies to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we present you with the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the information that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got sufficient space. This will add one more level of security for your websites simply because you shall always have a copy of any data that you could require and if the application is installed on your personal computer, a copy shall be available not just on their servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting
You can use the Dropbox backup feature with all shared hosting services which we offer and at no extra cost. Through the respective section in the Hepsia CP, you are able to link a Dropbox account with several mouse clicks and the backups will start being created there the same day. You can choose the sites and databases which will be copied there individually, so if you have plenty of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you can select only the content which you actually need. You could also choose the number of backups that will be kept within your Dropbox account, ranging from three to fourteen, so you can have a daily copy of your content going two weeks back. Incorporating multiple accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is equally effortless. The Dropbox backups could be used in addition to the daily backups we keep of all your information in case that you would like to have a copy on your PC through the Dropbox application.
