Learn more about the Dropbox Backup service offered inside the Hepsia Control Panel and see how to employ it.
Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have a site which is accessible online by entering a domain address, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access via their application using a computer or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not presented as an actual Internet page. The service enables you to access your information from any location as long as you log in with the correct credentials. Since the company allows third-party companies to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the chance to create regular automatic backups of the data that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got sufficient space. This will incorporate one more level of security for your sites since you shall always have a copy of any data that you could need and if the app is installed on your personal computer, a copy will be available not just on their servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Web Hosting

account, you'll be able to permit this option with a few clicks inside your Hepsia CP and our system will start producing backups the very same day. Depending on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and the amount of content you've got on our hosting servers, you'll be able to pick the number of different backups which shall be generated, ranging from 3 to fourteen. You can also choose if backups shall be made only of the website files or of the databases also and Hepsia will permit you to enable this option for each and every Internet site or database individually, so you can back up only the content you actually need. Activating the service is very simple and all it takes is to incorporate your Dropbox account inside the corresponding section of Hepsia.

These options could be altered effortlessly at any time and you can even use numerous Dropbox accounts or delete ones you no longer want to use. You should only ensure that the total size of the backups will not exceed the disk space limit that you have on their end.
