Get to know what Dropbox backups signify and the way 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 an Internet site that's accessible online by entering a domain, Dropbox allows you to store files, that you can access via their app using a computer or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not presented as an actual web page. The service allows you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the proper credentials. As the company allows third-party companies to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the chance to generate regular automatic backups of the information that you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you have enough space. This shall add one more level of security for your websites because you will always have a copy of any info that you may require and if the application is installed on your PC, a copy will be available not just on their servers, but also within a folder on your end.
