What does the Dropbox backup procedure involve? How to save your hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity nowadays as it allows you to access any content saved on its servers from any device provided that their software is installed. The content is synchronized between all devices, so that you will be able to access it anytime. Dropbox does not offer Internet hosting services, so if you upload an html file it will not display as a web page and will not be executed. This particular service is used only for storing info and we've taken advantage of the fact that they offer an API to third-party businesses to set up a backup service on our end, that you could use if you host your websites on our hosting servers. With this additional function you will not need toworry about your content since you shall always have a copy of your sites on the Dropbox servers and on your personal computer just in case that something happens - a script update failure, deleting files by mistake, etc.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Website Hosting
You could use the Dropbox backup function with all shared website hosting plans
we offer and at no extra cost. Through the respective section inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to link a Dropbox account with a couple of clicks and the backups will start being created there the same day. You'll be able to pick the Internet sites and databases that will be copied there separately, so if you have loads of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you can select just the content which you truly need. You could also select the number of backups that'll be kept within your Dropbox account, ranging from 3 to 14, so you can have a daily copy of your information going two weeks back.
