Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. Unlike a web hosting service where you can have an Internet site that is accessible online by entering a domain address, Dropbox permits you to store files, that you can access through their app using a computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual web page. The service enables you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the correct credentials. Since 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 produce regular automatic backups of the info that you have on our end to a Dropbox account as long as you have sufficient space. This shall add one more level of protection for your Internet sites since you will always have a copy of any info that you might require and if the application is installed on your PC, a copy shall be available not only on their web servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Hosting
The Dropbox backup feature is accessible with all our hosting solutions and activating it takes several clicks, so you'll be able to link the account on our end to your Dropbox space effortlessly. The tool which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose which websites and databases should be backed up one by one and how many copies ought to be generated, the maximum number being 14. This way you'll be able to have a daily copy of your data for the past two weeks in case you modify or delete something that you need. How much content shall be stored within your Dropbox account and how many copies will be available also is determined by the size of the data and the disk space which you have on their end. The feature may be enabled or disabled anytime and if required, you'll be able to effortlessly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even include a number of accounts and have numerous websites backed up in different accounts.
