Understand better what Dropbox backups stand for and how to activate them for your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. Different from an Internet hosting service where you can have a site that is accessible online by inputting a domain name, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access via their application using a PC or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not shown as an actual website. The service allows you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the correct credentials. Since the firm allows third-party service providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we offer you the chance to create regular automatic backups of the content that you have on our end to a Dropbox account as long as you have enough space. This will incorporate one more level of security for your sites since you will always have a copy of any data that you may need and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy will be available not just on their servers, but also in a folder on your end.
