Get to know what Dropbox backups stand for and ways to enable them for your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Different from an Internet hosting service where you can have a website that is accessible online by inputting a domain address, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access from their application using a computer or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not shown as an actual Internet site. The service permits you to access your content from any location so long as you log in with the correct credentials. Because the company allows third-party providers to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we present you with the opportunity to produce regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you've got enough space. This will incorporate one more level of security for your websites simply because you shall always have a copy of any information that you may need and if the app is installed on your PC, a copy will be available not only on their hosting servers, but also within a folder on your end.
