Get to know what Dropbox backups signify and how to activate them from your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Different from an Internet hosting service where you can have a site that's accessible online by entering a domain, Dropbox enables you to store files, which you can access via their app using a personal computer or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not presented as an actual website. The service allows you to access your content from any location so long as you log in with the proper credentials. Since the company allows third-party firms to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we present you with the opportunity to generate regular automatic backups of the data you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you have sufficient space. This will add one more level of security for your sites simply because you shall always have a copy of any info that you could require and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy will be available not only on their servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Website Hosting

The tool which you'll find inside the Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to select which websites and databases should be backed up independently and what number of copies ought to be made, the biggest amount being 14. Thus you could have a daily copy of your information for the past 14 days if you alter or delete something that you need. How much content will be stored in your Dropbox account and how many copies will be available also is determined by the size of the data and the disk space that you have on their end. The feature could be enabled or disabled at any time and if necessary, you can quickly switch the Dropbox account linked to your shared hosting space on our end or even add a number of accounts and have different Internet sites backed up in different accounts.
