Understand better what Dropbox backups signify and how to activate them for your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity lately as it permits you to access any content saved on its web servers through any device so long as their app is set up. The information is synchronized between all devices, so that you may access it at any moment. Dropbox does not offer hosting services, so if you upload an html file it will not display as a site and shall not be executed. This particular service is used only for storing data and we've taken advantage of the fact that they provide an API to third-party companies to create a backup service on our end, that you'll be able to use if you host your sites on our web servers. With this added function you'll not need tobe worried about your content considering that you will always have a copy of your sites on the Dropbox servers and on your PC just in case that something happens - a script update crash, deleting files accidentally, etc.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting
You can use the Dropbox backup function with all shared hosting services that we offer and at no extra charge. Through the respective section inside the Hepsia CP, you are able to link a Dropbox account with a few mouse clicks and the backups will start being produced there the same day. You'll be able to choose the sites and databases that shall be copied there independently, so if you have plenty of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you can choose just the content that you actually need. You could also pick the number of backups which will be kept within 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. Adding several accounts or deleting one which you no longer want to use is equally simple. The Dropbox backups can be used together with the daily backups which we keep of all your information in the event that you would like to have a copy on your PC through the Dropbox app.
