Understand better what Dropbox backups signify and the ways to enable them from your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike a web hosting service where you can have a website which is accessible online by typing a domain address, Dropbox enables you to store files, which you can access from their app using a personal computer or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not displayed as an actual Internet page. The service enables you to access your information from any location as long as you log in with the proper credentials. Since the firm allows third-party providers to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we offer you the opportunity to produce regular automatic backups of the content that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got enough space. This will incorporate one more level of protection for your Internet sites as you shall always have a copy of any data that you might need and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy will be available not just on their hosting servers, but also inside a folder on your end.
