Understand better what Dropbox backups represent and the ways to enable them from your hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately as it permits you to access any content saved on its servers via any device provided that their app is installed. The information is synchronized between all devices, which means you will be able to access it at any moment. Dropbox doesn't offer hosting services, hence if you upload an html file it won't display as a webpage and will not be executed. This particular service is used only for storing information and we have taken advantage of the fact that they supply an API to third-party companies to set up a backup service on our end, which you could use if you host your websites on our servers. With this extra feature you will not have tobe worried about your content since you'll always have a copy of your Internet sites on the Dropbox servers and on your PC in the event that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files accidentally, and so forth.
