Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Different from a hosting service where you can have a site which is accessible online by typing a domain, Dropbox enables you to store files, which you can access via their app using a computer or a smart phone. The files aren't executed, so an html file will be listed and not shown as an actual Internet page. The service permits you to access your content material from any location provided that you log in with the right credentials. Because the company allows third-party service providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the chance to produce regular automatic backups of the data you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you have enough space. This will add one more level of security for your Internet sites because you shall always have a copy of any info that you may need and if the application is installed on your computer, a copy shall be available not only on their hosting servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Web Hosting
You could use the Dropbox backup feature with all shared web hosting packages which 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 mouse clicks and the backups will start being produced there the same day. You could select the websites and databases that will be copied there one by one, so if you have loads of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you can choose only the content you actually need. You'll be able to also choose the number of backups that'll be kept inside your Dropbox account, ranging from three to fourteen, so you'll be able to have a daily copy of your data going two weeks back. Adding numerous accounts or deleting one which you no longer want to use is equally simple. The Dropbox backups may be used along with the daily backups which we keep of all your data in the event that you would like to have a copy on your personal computer via the Dropbox application.
