Get to know what Dropbox backups represent and how to enable them from your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Different from a hosting service where you can have a site which is accessible online by typing a domain address, Dropbox permits you to store files, which you can access from their application using a PC or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not presented as an actual website. The service permits you to access your content material from any location so long as you log in with the proper credentials. As the company allows third-party companies to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the opportunity 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 add one more level of protection for your Internet sites as you shall always have a copy of any info that you might require and if the application is installed on your personal computer, a copy shall be available not only on their web servers, but also within a folder on your end.
