Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have a site that is accessible online by typing a domain name, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access through their application using a personal computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not presented as an actual web page. The service permits you to access your content from any location so long as you log in with the right credentials. Since the company allows third-party companies to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we offer you the opportunity to produce regular automatic backups of the information you have on our end to a Dropbox account as long as you have sufficient space. This shall add one more level of protection for your sites since you shall always have a copy of any information that you might require and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy will be available not only on their servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Website Hosting
You can use the Dropbox backup function with all shared website hosting packages we offer and at no extra charge. Via the respective section inside the Hepsia CP, you can link a Dropbox account with a couple of mouse clicks and the backups will start being created there the same day. You can select the websites and databases that shall be copied there individually, so if you have plenty of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you could choose only the content you actually need. You'll be able to also pick the number of backups which will be kept in your Dropbox account, ranging from three to 14, so you'll be able to have a daily copy of your information going 14 days back. Including numerous accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is as easy. The Dropbox backups may be used along 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 via the Dropbox app.
