Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Different from a hosting service where you can have an Internet site that's accessible online by entering a domain name, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access from their application using a personal computer or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not shown as an actual web page. The service allows you to access your content material from any location provided that you log in with the right credentials. As the company allows third-party companies to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we give you the opportunity to create regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you have sufficient space. This shall incorporate one more level of security for your sites simply because you shall always have a copy of any information that you might need and if the app is installed on your personal computer, a copy will be available not only on their web servers, but also inside a folder on your end.

Dropbox Backups in Cloud Hosting

The Dropbox backup function is offered with all of our cloud hosting solutions and activating it takes a couple of mouse clicks, so you'll be able to link the account on our end to your Dropbox space easily. The tool which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to pick which sites and databases should be backed up independently and how many copies should be created, the biggest number being 14. In this way you'll be able to have a daily copy of your information for the past 14 days in the event that you change 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 which you have on their end. The feature may be enabled or disabled whenever you want and if necessary, you could quickly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even add multiple accounts and have different websites backed up in different accounts.
