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