Get to know what Dropbox backups signify and the ways to enable them for your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage service, that allows you to store any kind of content. The files are synchronized between all computers where the Dropbox app is installed and you can access them from any device, even a smart phone. Unlike a hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for example, will appear as an actual web page with text and images on it, in Dropbox you will view the content as a list of files and folders. If you already have an account with them or open a new one, you can reap the benefits of our 100 % free service and you can link a web hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can create regular backups there. This way you could have a copy of your info on our web servers, on their servers and also on your PC and you'll be able to access it from any machine so long as the Dropbox app is set up, which will offer you more protection if something happens with your information, like an unintended deletion, for instance.
