Dropbox is a file storage platform, which has been gaining a lot in popularity recently as it enables you to access any content located on its hosting servers from any device provided their app is installed. The data is synchronized between all units, which means you will be able to access it anytime. Dropbox does not offer hosting services, so if you upload an html file it shall not appear as a site and will not be executed. The service is used exclusively for storing info and we have taken advantage of the fact that they offer an API to third-party companies to set up a backup service on our end, which you could use if you host your websites on our hosting servers. With this added function you will not need tobe worried about your content as you will always have a copy of your websites on the Dropbox servers and on your personal computer just in case that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files by accident, etc.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting
If you wish to make the most of our Dropbox backup service and you have a shared hosting account, you can permit this option with a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel and our system will start producing backups the very same day. Based upon the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and just how much content you've got on our hosting servers, you can choose the number of different backups that will be generated, ranging from three to 14. You may also decide if backups shall be generated just of the site files or of the databases also and Hepsia will allow you to enable this option for each Internet site or database individually, to ensure you can back up precisely the content you actually need. Allowing the service is very simple and all it takes is to add your Dropbox account inside the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may even add a number of accounts and removing one which you no longer want to use takes just a 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.
