Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. In contrast to a web hosting service where you can have a site that's accessible online by entering a domain name, Dropbox permits 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 shall be listed and not displayed as an actual Internet page. The service permits you to access your content from any location as long as you log in with the proper credentials. As the company allows third-party firms to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the chance to generate regular automatic backups of the data that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you've got sufficient space. This will incorporate one more level of security for your websites as you shall always have a copy of any data that you may require and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy shall be available not only on their web servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Shared Hosting

From the respective section within the Hepsia Control Panel, you could link a Dropbox account with a few clicks and the backups will start being created there the same day. You'll be able to pick the sites and databases that shall be copied there individually, so if you have loads of content on our end or a small disk quota with Dropbox, you'll be able to select only the content that you truly need. You could also pick the number of backups that will be kept in your Dropbox account, ranging from three to fourteen, so you could have a daily copy of your content going 14 days back. Incorporating numerous accounts or deleting one which you no longer want to use is just as effortless.
