Understand better what Dropbox backups symbolize and ways to activate them from your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike a web hosting service where you can have a website that's accessible online by inputting a domain, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access from their app using a computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not presented as an actual webpage. The service enables you to access your content material from any location so long as you log in with the proper credentials. Because the firm allows third-party firms to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the data you have on our end to a Dropbox account as long as you have enough space. This shall incorporate one more level of security for your Internet sites since you shall always have a copy of any data that you might need and if the app is installed on your computer, a copy shall be available not only on their hosting servers, but also in a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Website Hosting
The Dropbox backup function is offered with all our shared website hosting packages and enabling it takes several mouse clicks, so you could link the account on our end to your Dropbox space in no time. The tool which you shall find in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick which websites and databases should be backed up independently and how many copies has to be created, the biggest number being 14.

How much content will be stored inside your Dropbox account and how many copies shall be available also depends on the size of the content and the disk space which you have on their end. The function can be enabled or disabled whenever you want and if needed, you can effortlessly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even incorporate multiple accounts and have different websites backed up in different accounts.
