Discover more about the Dropbox Backup service provided inside the Hepsia Control Panel and see how to take advantage of it.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity nowadays as it enables you to access any content saved on its servers through any device provided their software is installed. The content is synchronized between all units, which means you can access it anytime. Dropbox doesn't offer Internet hosting services, thus if you upload an html file it won't show up as a website and won't be executed. The service is used only for storing content and we've taken advantage of the fact that they supply an API to third-party businesses to set up a backup service on our end, which you can use if you host your websites on our hosting servers. With this added feature you'll not need tostress about your content since you shall always have a copy of your sites on the Dropbox servers and on your computer system in case that something happens - a script update failing, deleting files accidentally, and so forth.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting
If you want to take full advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a shared hosting
account, you'll be able to permit this option with a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel and our system will start making backups the same day. Based upon 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 made, ranging from three to 14. You'll be able to also decide if backups shall be created simply of the website files or of the databases too and Hepsia will permit you to enable this option for every website or database separately, so you can back up precisely the content you actually need. Allowing the service is very simple and all it takes is to add your Dropbox account within the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may also include multiple accounts and removing one that you no longer want to use takes just a click. You can use this service in combination with our regular backups that are generated 4 times a day and incorporate all your files and databases.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers

, you could use the Dropbox backup feature without difficulty because linking the two accounts takes only a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is used for the management of the semi-dedicated accounts. Dependant upon the total size of the content that you have on our end, the space quota of your Dropbox account and the information which you want to have, you can choose if your whole account shall be backed up or only particular sites and databases. Furthermore, you can pick the number of daily backups that'll be kept within your Dropbox account at any moment. The number ranges from three to fourteen and may be adjusted in either direction whenever you want.

Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
The Dropbox service is accessible for all VPS servers
which are acquired with the Hepsia hosting CP. You could easily link the 2 accounts and our system will start making copies of your content the same day. If you have enough space within your Dropbox account, you can have all of the information copied there each and every day with a maximum of 14 copies. If the space is not adequate or you don't need everything, you may either select a smaller number of copies to be saved within your Dropbox account at a time or you can select only specific sites or databases to be backed up. With this function you shall be able to look through your information for up to 2 weeks back on your PC, which means more protection for any info that you have on the Virtual private server.

If you do not have a lot of space in Dropbox or you have a great deal of content on the dedicated server and you don't require all of it, you could pick individual domain or subdomain folders and databases to be backed up as well as the amount of copies to be kept at the same time. Our system is incredibly flexible, therefore you could change the websites and the amount of daily backups anytime. The Dropbox account could be disconnected at any time, thus if you no longer wish to employ the service or you've decided to use our in-house backup service along with all other administration tasks which we offer with our Managed Services upgrade, you could disable this function with only a click.
