Discover more about the Dropbox Backup service available inside the Hepsia Control Panel and see how to use it.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity nowadays as it permits you to access any content stored on its hosting servers via any device so long as their software is installed. The data is synchronized between all units, so you can easily access it anytime. Dropbox doesn't offer Internet hosting services, thus if you upload an html file it won't appear as a site and shall not be executed. The service is used only for storing information and we have taken advantage of the fact that they provide an API to third-party companies to set up a backup service on our end, that you could use if you host your sites on our servers. With this added feature you'll not have tobe worried about your content since you will always have a copy of your sites on the Dropbox servers and on your laptop or computer in the event that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files accidentally, etcetera.
