What does the Dropbox backup procedure include? How to copy your hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have a site that's accessible online by entering a domain address, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access from 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 permits you to access your data from any location provided that you log in with the correct credentials. Because the company allows third-party service providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we give you the opportunity to create regular automatic backups of the info you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you've got enough space. This shall add one more level of security for your Internet sites since you shall always have a copy of any info that you could need and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy will be available not just on their hosting servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Web Hosting
You'll be able to use the Dropbox backup function with all web hosting services
we offer and at no extra charge. Via the respective section in the Hepsia CP, you can link a Dropbox account with a few mouse clicks and the backups will start being generated there the same day. You could choose the Internet sites and databases which will be copied there individually, so if you have loads of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you'll be able to choose just the content that you truly need. You'll be able to also select the number of backups that will be kept inside your Dropbox account, ranging from three to 14, so you could have a daily copy of your data going 14 days back. Including several accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is equally simple. The Dropbox backups could be used in addition to the daily backups we keep of all your data in the event that you would like to have a copy on your PC through the Dropbox application.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server
accounts set up on our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform include the Dropbox backup function by default, so you could link an account which you have with them with a few mouse clicks. The tool which you shall find inside the Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to choose different options - what website files and databases shall be backed up and how many copies should be kept in your Dropbox account. Thus you'll be able to have a copy only of certain content for up to 14 days back. These options could be modified with ease whenever you want and you can even use multiple Dropbox accounts or delete ones you no longer want to use. You should just ensure that the total size of the backups will not exceed the disk space limit that you have on their end. Since the backed up content could be accessed in a conventional folder on your PC, this function is a practical addition to the daily backups which we shall make of your entire account at least four times each day.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
The Dropbox service is readily available for all VPS hosting service
that are acquired with the Hepsia hosting CP. You can easily link the two accounts and our system will begin generating copies of your data the same day. If you have sufficient space in your Dropbox account, you can have all of the information copied there each and every day with a maximum of 14 copies. If the space is not enough or you do not need everything, you could either opt for a smaller number of copies to be kept within your Dropbox account at the same time or you can select only specific Internet sites or databases to be backed up. With this feature you will be able to check out your data for up to 14 days back on your computer, which means more protection for any info that you have on the VPS. The service could be disabled with a mouse click at any time if you no longer need to use Dropbox for backups or if you use our backup feature, which is a part of the administration tasks included in the Managed Services upgrade.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
You can link a Dropbox account to any of our Linux dedicated servers
provided that you order it with the in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is very easy and takes only several mouse clicks, so you will be able to have a copy of your information both on the Dropbox servers and on your laptop or computer the very same day you link the 2 accounts. If you don't have much space in Dropbox or you have quite a lot of content on the dedicated server and you don't need all of it, you'll be able to select particular domain or subdomain folders and databases to be backed up along with what amount of copies to be kept at any given time. Our system is quite flexible, and so you could change the Internet sites and the number of daily backups whenever you want. The Dropbox account could be disconnected at any time, thus if you no longer want to employ the service or you've decided to use our in-house backup service alongside all other administration tasks that we offer with our Managed Services upgrade, you can deactivate this function with a click.
