Discover more about the Dropbox Backup service provided inside the Hepsia Control Panel and see how to take advantage of it.
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to an Internet hosting service where you can have a website that's accessible online by entering a domain address, Dropbox enables you to store files, which you can access via their app using a personal computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual site. The service permits you to access your information from any location provided that you log in with the right credentials. Since the company allows third-party service providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the opportunity to produce regular automatic backups of the content that you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you've got sufficient space. This will include one more level of security for your websites because you will always have a copy of any information that you could need and if the application is installed on your personal computer, a copy shall be available not only on their servers, but also in a folder on your end.
