Dropmysite provides a simple and easy to use interface for users to backup their website and database. To backup your website, just enter your FTP or SFTP details and backups will be scheduled on a daily basis. Databases can be backed up by providing the hostname and the database username and password to connect to the server. Daily backups of the database will be taken to ensure you never lose your data again. We support MySQL Server at the moment. We will soon add support for other database servers.
Dropmysite schedules automated backups for your websites and databases. Our one click download feature lets you access your backup anytime and anywhere. Website backups are available as zipped files using the tar format for easy migration to the new server. Users can select any backup version and download the backup files to recreate their website. Databases are backed up as MySQL dump files. You can recreate your database within minutes using the MySQL friendly dump file format.
Dropmysite pays special attention to ensure that your backups are secure while backing up and when stored on our servers. We use industry standard security practices to ensure your data is protected and secure. Websites can be backed up using the SFTP protocol to ensure the files are encrypted. Dropmysite ensures that the connection to your database is secure. All the backup data is encrypted using AES 256 encryption block cipher on our secure servers.
Schedule your backups on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Dropmysite provides you the flexibility to choose the appropriate time for scheduling your backups. This ensures that our backup process does not affect the performance of your servers during the peak activity time of the day. Select the exact hour and time of the day when you want the backup to start and we shall handle the rest. Dropmysite also provides the flexibility to take a weekly and monthly snapshot of your databases and websites.
Dropmysite allows you to monitor the uptime of your website and notifies you via email or sms in the event of a server or network outage. You can monitor your website from anywhere through the web or on mobile.
Dropmysite lets you analyze the response time (in msecs) of your website from around the world and view them graphically on a chart. You can monitor the performance of either a GET, POST or a HEAD request.
With the automated Restore feature, you can now recreate your website and database with a single click. Instead of restoring manually via FTP, you can look through your previous backups and select to restore the entire site or specific files. Dropmysite recently added the feature to automatically restore the database also.
Dropmysite has integrated Google’s Safe Browsing into our services. This way we’d notify you if Google determines that your website contains suspected malware / or suspected phishing code and is deemed not safe for browsing. This is integrated with website and database backup for faster recovery.
Dropmysite has recently launched a new feature to view the modified files in the backup. This will enable a website admin to verify the changes that he has made in his latest release and to ensure it has backed up properly. Planning for rollbacks are also possible using this feature in association with selective restore feature.
Migrating a website and its database could not have been easier now. Just create source and target profiles (website / databases) on Dropmysite and restore from source to target website / database.
