Get to know what Dropbox backups represent and ways to enable them from your hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, which has been gaining a lot in popularity recently as it enables you to access any content saved on its hosting servers via any device provided that their application is installed. The data is synchronized between all devices, so that you can easily access it at any time. Dropbox does not offer hosting services, therefore if you upload an html file it shall not show up as a site and won't be executed. This particular service is used just for storing data and we've taken advantage of the fact that they supply an API to third-party companies to create a backup service on our end, that you'll be able to use if you host your websites on our hosting servers. With this additional feature you will not have tobe worried about your content since you will always have a copy of your websites on the Dropbox servers and on your laptop or computer just in case that something happens - a script update failure, deleting files by mistake, and so on.
