What does the Dropbox backup procedure include? How to back up your Internet hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have a website that is accessible online by typing a domain address, Dropbox permits you to store files, that you can access through their application using a PC or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual website. The service enables you to access your information from any location so long as you log in with the proper credentials. Because the company allows third-party companies to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we present you with the chance to create regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you have enough space. This will include one more level of security for your websites because you will always have a copy of any data that you may require and if the application is installed on your PC, a copy shall be available not only on their servers, but also within a folder on your end.

which we offer and at no extra cost. Using the respective section within the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to link a Dropbox account with several mouse clicks and the backups will start being generated there the same day. You'll be able to select the Internet sites and databases that shall be copied there one by one, so if you have plenty of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you could pick only the content which you really need. You could also pick the number of backups that'll be kept within your Dropbox account, ranging from three to 14, so you could have a daily copy of your information going two weeks back. Including numerous accounts or deleting one that you no longer want to use is just as easy. The Dropbox backups may be used along with the daily backups which we keep of all your content in the event that you would like to have a copy on your personal computer through the Dropbox application.

These options can be changed easily at any time and you could even use multiple Dropbox accounts or delete ones you no longer want to use. You should only ensure that the total size of the backups will not exceed the disk space limit you have on their end.
