What precisely does the Dropbox backup procedure include? How to copy your Internet hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have a website that's accessible online by typing a domain, Dropbox permits you to store files, that you can access from their app using a personal computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not displayed as an actual site. The service permits you to access your information from any location provided that you log in with the right credentials. Because the firm allows third-party providers to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we give you the chance to create regular automatic backups of the information that you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you've got sufficient space. This will include one more level of protection for your websites as you shall always have a copy of any data that you could need and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy shall be available not only on their web servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Web Hosting
The Dropbox backup function is offered with all of our web hosting
packages and enabling it takes a couple of mouse clicks, so you'll be able to link the account on our end to your Dropbox space with ease. The tool which you'll find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel shall permit you to select which sites and databases should be backed up independently and what amount of copies has to be generated, the highest amount being 14. In this way you'll be able to have a daily copy of your content for the past 14 days in case that you modify or delete something that you need. How much content will be stored inside your Dropbox account and how many copies will be available also depends upon the size of the content and the disk space that you have on their end. The feature could be enabled or disabled whenever you want and if necessary, you may quickly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even add multiple accounts and have various sites backed up in different accounts.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server
accounts created on our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform feature the Dropbox backup function by default, so you'll be able to link an account that you have with them with a couple of clicks. The tool which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to pick different options - what site files and databases will be backed up and what number of copies have to be kept inside your Dropbox account. In this way you can have a copy just of specific content for up to fourteen days back. These options could be modified easily at any time and you could even use a number of Dropbox accounts or delete ones which you no longer want to use. You should just make certain that the total size of the backups doesn't exceed the disk space limit that you have on their end. Because the backed up content can be accessed in a standard folder on your computer, this feature is a useful addition to the daily backups that we shall make of your entire account at least four times daily.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
You can take full advantage of the Dropbox backups in the event that the VPS servers
that you pick is set up with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting CP. Using very intuitive interface, it shall take you only a couple of mouse clicks to link the VPS to your Dropbox account and the same day our system will start copying your data there. There are a couple of customizable options - the amount of daily backups which you shall have at any given time, ranging from three to 14, and the content that shall be backed up. The latter option will enable you to decide if our system shall copy everything or only certain websites and databases, so you can get just the data that you really need, especially if the free space within your Dropbox account isn't enough for multiple backups with significant size. You can disconnect your account with just a mouse click in your VPS CP if you no longer wish to use Dropbox. We also provide standard backups among other administration services as part of our Managed Services package.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers
which are set up with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel include the Dropbox backup feature by default, so if you'd like to use this service, you simply have to link the server to your account from the Dropbox section in Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will permit you to choose the Internet sites that will be backed up in case that you don't need the entire content that you have on the server or you simply do not have a lot of free space within your Dropbox account. You could also select how many copies of the daily backups will be kept, so if you select the maximum number of fourteen, for instance, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for every day of the past two weeks. Both options could be edited at any time in case you change your mind with regards to the content of the number of backups you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account without difficulty if you don't want to use it or if you want to use the backup service which is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other useful server management tasks which our system administrators can perform for you.
