What does the Dropbox backup procedure entail? How to save your hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to a web hosting service where you can have a website that is accessible online by typing a domain address, Dropbox enables you to store files, which you can access from their app using a PC or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not presented as an actual website. The service enables you to access your information from any location so long as you log in with the correct credentials. Because the company allows third-party firms to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we present you with the opportunity to produce regular automatic backups of the information that you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you have sufficient space. This shall add one more level of protection for your sites as you shall always have a copy of any info that you might require and if the app is installed on your computer, a copy shall be available not just on their hosting servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Hosting
If you wish to make the most of our Dropbox backup service and you've got a cloud hosting
account, you can allow this option with a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel and our system will start creating backups the same day. Depending on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and the amount of content you have on our web servers, you'll be able to pick the number of different backups which will be created, ranging from 3 to fourteen. You may also decide if backups shall be generated just of the Internet site files or of the databases too and Hepsia will permit you to enable this option for every single website or database independently, so you can back up only the content you actually need. Allowing the service is very easy and all it takes is to include your Dropbox account in the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may even incorporate a number of accounts and removing one you no longer want to use takes simply a mouse click. You could use this service in combination with our regular backups that are created 4 times a day and incorporate all your files and databases.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server
accounts created on our advanced cloud hosting platform feature the Dropbox backup function by default, so you can link an account which you have with them with several mouse clicks. The tool which you shall find within the Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to select different options - what site files and databases shall be backed up and what amount of copies ought to be kept inside your Dropbox account. That way you'll be able to have a copy just of particular content for up to 14 days back. These options can be modified effortlessly at any time and you can even use multiple Dropbox accounts or delete ones which you no longer want to use. You should only ensure that the total size of the backups won't exceed the disk space limit you have on their end. As the backed up content could be accessed in a conventional folder on your personal computer, this function is a valuable addition to the daily backups which we'll create of your entire account at least four times every day.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
You'll be able to use this function with all Linux VPS servers
we offer provided you choose Hepsia for the hosting Control Panel. Your Dropbox account could be linked to the server through the user-friendly interface Hepsia comes with and a copy of your content shall be stored in your Dropbox account on a daily basis. The maximum amount of copies which you can have at any time is fourteen, thus if you do not have much free space with Dropbox or you just have too much content on the VPS, you can either opt for a smaller number of copies or you could pick just particular Internet sites to be backed up. The latter can be added or taken off from the backups whenever you want with ease. The Dropbox feature will permit you to get a copy of your content right on your PC every day without doing anything by hand, but you may also consider the backup service we offer with our Managed Services upgrade since you shall get a number of other administration tasks with it also.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
It will take you only one or two clicks to link your Dropbox account to a dedicated server
from our company when the machine is set up with our progressive Hepsia CP. The user-friendly interface shall give you access to different options such as precisely what to be backed up and what number of copies to be saved at one time inside the Dropbox account. This adaptability is beneficial in case you have lots of information on the server and you don't require everything or in the event that the free disk space that you have within the Dropbox account is limited. You could pick certain domain and subdomain folders or even just specific databases to be copied to their servers each day and the amount of copies which you can have is between 3 and fourteen. Both options could be changed according to your needs at any moment and will take effect the very next time our system produces the backups. The Dropbox account can be deleted with a mouse click and if you no longer wish to use it or you don't have one, you could also consider the backup service we offer with the Managed Services upgrade along with many other tasks which will make the management of your dedicated web server considerably more easier.
