What exactly does the Dropbox backup procedure entail? How to save your hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a file storage service, which permits you to store any kind of information. The files are synchronized between all machines where the Dropbox app is installed and you could access them from any device, even a smart phone. Unlike an Internet hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for instance, shall show as an actual site with text and images on it, in Dropbox you will view the content as a list of folders and files. If you already have an account with them or create a new one, you can take advantage of our 100 % free service and you can link a web hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can make regular backups there. That way you could have a copy of your information on our hosting servers, on their servers and also on your personal computer and you'll be able to access it from any gadget so long as the Dropbox application is set up, which will provide you with more protection in case something happens with your data, such as an unintentional deletion, for instance.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Hosting
If you choose to take full advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a cloud hosting
account, you can allow this option with one or two mouse clicks in your Hepsia CP and our system will start creating backups the same day. Based upon the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and the amount of content you have on our servers, you'll be able to select the number of different backups which will be created, ranging from 3 to 14. You may also decide if backups will be made just of the Internet site files or of the databases also and Hepsia will permit you to enable this option for every single site or database independently, to ensure you can back up only the content which you actually need. Allowing the service is very easy and all it takes is to add your Dropbox account inside the corresponding section of Hepsia. You can even incorporate a number of accounts and removing one which you no longer want to use takes simply a mouse click. You'll be able to use this service in combination with our regular backups that are made four times a day and include all of your files and databases.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
All VPS server
accounts that are set up with our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel include the Dropbox backup feature by default, so if you would like to take advantage of this feature, you just need to link the two accounts with a few clicks and our system shall start producing copies of your content every day. You shall be able to pick what will be backed up - certain domain folders and databases or the whole content, as well as how many copies will be stored on the Dropbox service - from 3 to 14. These options depend upon the size of the Internet sites on the Virtual private server and the free space that you have with Dropbox and they can be modified whenever you want, offering you more flexibility. The feature could be disabled with a click in the respective section of Hepsia if you no longer need to use your Dropbox account for backups. We also offer a regular backup of your data with the Managed Services upgrade, which comes with a wide variety of other administration services.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans
which are supplied with our Hepsia hosting CP incorporate the Dropbox backup function by default, so if you need to use this service, you simply have to link the server to your account via the Dropbox section in Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will enable you to pick the Internet sites that'll be backed up in case that you do not require the whole content that you have on the server or you simply do not have much free space inside your Dropbox account. You could also pick how many copies of the day-to-day backups will be stored, hence if you pick the maximum number of 14, for instance, you will have a copy of your files and databases for each day of the past 14 days. Both options could be edited anytime in case you change your mind regarding the content of the number of backups you need. You could also disconnect the Dropbox account without difficulty if you don't need to use it or if you would rather use the backup service which is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other practical server management tasks which our system admins can perform for you.
