Get to know what Dropbox backups stand for and how to activate them for your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity nowadays as it permits you to access any content kept on its web servers using any device provided their app is installed. The data is synchronized between all units, which means you may access it anytime. Dropbox doesn't offer hosting services, therefore if you upload an html file it shall not display as a webpage and will not be executed. This particular service is used just for storing data and we've 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'll be able to use if you host your sites on our hosting servers. With this extra feature you won't need tostress about your content considering that you will always have a copy of your Internet sites on the Dropbox servers and on your laptop or computer in the event that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files by accident, and so forth.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting
The Dropbox backup feature is offered with all our shared hosting packages and activating it takes several mouse clicks, so you'll be able to link the account on our end to your Dropbox space without difficulty. The tool that you will find within the Hepsia hosting CP shall enable you to select which sites and databases should be backed up one by one and what number of copies has to be generated, the highest number being fourteen. This way you'll be able to have a daily copy of your content for the past two weeks in the event that you change or delete something that you need. How much content will be stored in your Dropbox account and how many copies shall be available also depends on the size of the content and the disk space which you have on their end. The feature can be enabled or disabled whenever you want and if necessary, you may quickly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even include a number of accounts and have a number of sites backed up in different accounts.
