What precisely does the Dropbox backup procedure include? How to back up your web hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a file storage platform, which has been gaining a lot in popularity lately as it enables you to access any content saved on its hosting servers using any device as long as their application is set up. The data is synchronized between all devices, so you can access it at any moment. Dropbox doesn't offer web hosting services, therefore if you upload an html file it will not appear as a webpage and won't be executed. The service is used only for storing content and we've taken advantage of the fact that they supply an API to third-party businesses to set up a backup service on our end, that you'll be able to use if you host your Internet sites on our hosting servers. With this additional function you won't have tostress about your content as you'll always have a copy of your sites on the Dropbox servers and on your computer system in case that something happens - a script update failure, deleting files by accident, etcetera.
