What exactly does the Dropbox backup procedure entail? How to duplicate your hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a file storage service, that enables you to store any type of information. The files are synchronized between all computers in which the Dropbox app is set up and you can access them through any kind of device, including a smartphone. Unlike a hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for example, shall appear as an actual page with text and images on it, in Dropbox you shall see the content as a list of folders and files. If you already have an account with them or open a new one, you'll be able to take advantage of our totally free service and you can link a web hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can make regular backups there. In this way you can have a copy of your info on our servers, on their servers and also on your PC and you shall be able to access it from any unit so long as the Dropbox application is installed, which will provide you with more safety if something happens with your data, like an unintentional deletion, for instance.
Dropbox Backups in Web Hosting
If you want to take full advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a web hosting
account, you could enable this option with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia CP and our system will start making backups the very same day. Depending on the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and the amount of content you've got on our web servers, you could choose the number of different backups which shall be created, ranging from 3 to fourteen. You could also decide if backups will be made only of the website files or of the databases too and Hepsia will allow you to enable this option for each Internet site or database separately, to ensure you can back up only the content that 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 can even incorporate a number of accounts and removing one which you no longer want to use takes simply a click. You'll be able to use this service in addition to our regular backups which are created four times a day and incorporate all your files and databases.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated servers
, you could make use of the Dropbox backup feature with ease as linking the two accounts takes only several clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is used for the management of the semi-dedicated accounts. Depending on the total size of the content you have on our end, the space quota of your Dropbox account and the info which you'd like to have, you can choose if your whole account shall be backed up or only particular websites and databases. Furthermore, you'll be able to pick the number of daily backups that will be kept within your Dropbox account at one time. The amount ranges from 3 to fourteen and could be adjusted in either direction at any time. The Dropbox account can be removed from our system with only a mouse click if you no longer would like to use the service, although it comes very handy ifyou want to get a copy of your files automatically on your personal computer on top of the full backups which we produce on a daily basis on our end.
Dropbox Backups in VPS Servers
You can use this feature with all VPS servers
we offer as long as you select Hepsia for the hosting Control Panel. Your Dropbox account can be linked to the server via the user-friendly interface Hepsia provides and a copy of your data will be stored inside your Dropbox account every single day. The maximum amount of copies which you can have at any given time is 14, so if you don't have much free space with Dropbox or you have too much content on the VPS, you can either pick a smaller number of copies or you could choose only specific Internet sites to be backed up. The latter can be included or eliminated from the backups whenever you want with ease. The Dropbox function will enable 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 quite a few other administration tasks with it as well.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers
that are set up with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel incorporate the Dropbox backup feature by default, consequently if you'd like to employ this service, you simply have to link the server to your account through the Dropbox section within Hepsia. The user-friendly interface will permit you to pick the Internet sites which will be backed up in case that you do not require the whole content that you have on the server or you just do not have much free space within your Dropbox account. You could also select how many copies of the daily backups shall be saved, consequently if you select the maximum number of 14, for instance, you'll have a copy of your files and databases for each day of the past fourteen days. Both options could be edited anytime if you change your mind in regards to the content of the number of backups you need. You can also disconnect the Dropbox account effortlessly if you don't need to use it or if you would rather use the backup service which is a part of our Managed services upgrade along with other useful server management tasks our system admins can perform for you.
