Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to a hosting service where you can have an Internet site that's accessible online by inputting a domain address, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access from their application using a personal computer or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not displayed as an actual web page. The service allows you to access your information from any location so long as you log in with the correct credentials. Because the company allows third-party service 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 you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got enough space. This will add one more level of security for your websites since you shall always have a copy of any data that you may require and if the application is installed on your personal computer, a copy will be available not just on their hosting servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use the Dropbox backup feature with all cloud web hosting services that we offer and at no extra cost. From the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel, you could link a Dropbox account with a couple of clicks and the backups will start being produced there the same day. You'll be able to choose the sites and databases which shall be copied there separately, so if you have a lot of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you can choose only the content which you truly need. You'll be able to also choose the number of backups which will be kept in your Dropbox account, ranging from 3 to 14, so you can have a daily copy of your data going 14 days back. Incorporating a number of accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is equally effortless. The Dropbox backups can be used in addition to the daily backups which we keep of all your data in the event that you would like to have a copy on your laptop or computer via the Dropbox application.
