Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Different from a web hosting service where you can have a site that's accessible online by typing a domain name, Dropbox permits you to store files, that you can access via their app using a computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not presented as an actual web page. The service enables you to access your information from any location so long as you log in with the right credentials. Because the company allows third-party firms to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we give you the chance to create regular automatic backups of the information you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got sufficient space. This will add one more level of protection for your websites as you shall always have a copy of any info that you might need and if the app is installed on your personal computer, a copy shall be available not only on their servers, but also inside a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Web Hosting
You could use the Dropbox backup function with all web hosting services which we offer and at no extra cost. Through the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel, you could link a Dropbox account with several clicks and the backups will start being created there the same day. You can select the websites and databases that shall be copied there independently, so if you have lots of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you'll be able to pick only the content you really need. You could also select 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 data going 14 days back. Adding multiple accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is just as easy.

This way you can have a copy just of certain content for up to two weeks back. These options can be changed without difficulty anytime and you may even use multiple Dropbox accounts or delete ones that you no longer want to use. You should only make certain that the total size of the backups doesn't exceed the disk space limit you have on their end.
