Get to know what Dropbox backups symbolize and how to activate them for your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, which has been gaining a lot in popularity nowadays as it permits you to access any content saved on its servers using any device provided that their software is set up. The data is synchronized between all devices, which means you will be able to access it at any time. Dropbox doesn't offer Internet hosting services, so if you upload an html file it shall not show up as a web page and won't be executed. The service is used exclusively for storing content and we've taken advantage of the fact that they provide an API to third-party companies to set up a backup service on our end, which you could use if you host your Internet sites on our hosting servers. With this added function you will not need tobe concerned about your content considering that you will always have a copy of your Internet sites on the Dropbox servers and on your laptop or computer in the event that something happens - a script update failure, deleting files accidentally, etc.
