What precisely does the Dropbox backup procedure involve? How to back up your Internet hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity nowadays as it permits you to access any content saved on its servers via any device so long as their application is installed. The data is synchronized between all devices, so that you can access it at any moment. Dropbox doesn't offer Internet hosting services, so if you upload an html file it won't display as a site and will not be executed. This service is used exclusively for storing data and we've taken advantage of the fact that they offer an API to third-party firms to set up a backup service on our end, which you could use if you host your websites on our web servers. With this additional feature you won't have tobe concerned about your content since you shall always have a copy of your sites on the Dropbox servers and on your computer system just in case that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files accidentally, and so on.
