Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike a hosting service where you can have a site that is accessible online by typing a domain name, Dropbox enables you to store files, which you can access through their application using a computer or a smart phone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not displayed 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. Since the company allows third-party service providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the info you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you've got sufficient space. This will incorporate one more level of security for your websites since you will always have a copy of any information that you may need and if the app is installed on your computer system, a copy shall be available not just on their servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Website Hosting
You can use the Dropbox backup function with all cloud website hosting services that we offer and at no extra cost. From the respective section in the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to link a Dropbox account with a few clicks and the backups will start being generated there the same day. You could pick the websites and databases which shall be copied there individually, so if you have plenty of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you could pick only the content you really need. You could also select the number of backups that will be kept inside your Dropbox account, ranging from 3 to fourteen, so you'll be able to have a daily copy of your data going two weeks back. Including a number of accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is as simple. The Dropbox backups could be used together with the daily backups that we keep of all your data in case that you would like to have a copy on your laptop or computer through the Dropbox application.
