Get to know what Dropbox backups signify and the way to enable them for your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage service, which allows you to store any type of content. The files are synchronized between all machines in which the Dropbox application is set up and you could access them from any kind of device, including a smartphone. Unlike an Internet hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for instance, will show as an actual web page with text and images on it, in Dropbox you shall see the content as a list of folders and files. If you already have an account with them or open a new one, you can take advantage of our totally free service and you can link a hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can create regular backups there. In this way you could have a copy of your data on our hosting servers, on their servers and also on your PC and you'll be able to access it from any device provided the Dropbox app is set up, which will offer you more safety in the event that something happens with your files, such as an unintentional deletion, for example.
Dropbox Backups in Web Hosting

that you select when you sign up and the function shall be available inside the Hepsia Control Panel supplied with all accounts. Linking one or even numerous Dropbox accounts takes only a couple of mouse clicks and once the connection with our system is created, you could pick if all of your content will be backed up there or only particular Internet sites and databases. This depends upon the size of the content which you have on our end and how much space you have within your Dropbox account. The number of backups that you can have ranges from three to fourteen and our system will create a new one every day, so you could have a copy of your info for up to two weeks back and you'll be able to access them on your PC as regular files and folders. You will be able to change the websites or the number of backups anytime. This functionality is a great addition to the backups which we shall keep of your entire content 4 times a day. In case you no longer want your Dropbox account to be linked to our system, you can remove it with only a mouse click within your CP.

Either option can be changed at any time and the maximum daily backups you can have at a time is fourteen assuming that you have sufficient free space on their end.

that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to easily link the 2 accounts and our system shall start making copies of your content the same day. If you have sufficient space in your Dropbox account, you can have all of the data copied there daily with a maximum of fourteen copies. If the space is not enough or you don't need everything, you could either opt for a smaller number of copies to be kept within your Dropbox account at one time or you can choose just specific Internet sites or databases to be backed up. With this function you will be able to look through your information for up to two weeks back on your laptop or computer, which means more security for any information which you have on the VPS.

which are set up with our Hepsia hosting CP come with the Dropbox backup feature by default, thus if you would like to employ this service, you only have to link the server to your account using the Dropbox section inside Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will allow you to select the Internet sites that'll be backed up in case that you don't need the whole content which you have on the server or you simply do not have much free space inside your Dropbox account. You could also decide how many copies of the everyday backups shall be saved, thus if you choose the maximum number of fourteen, for instance, you will have a copy of your files and databases for every single day of the past fourteen days. Both options can be edited anytime in case you change your mind in regards to the content of the number of backups which you need.
