What does the Dropbox backup procedure entail? 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 permits you to access any content located on its web servers via any device as long as their application is set up. The content is synchronized between all devices, which means you may access it anytime. Dropbox does not offer web hosting services, thus if you upload an html file it will not show up as a site and will not be executed. The service is used just for storing info and we've taken advantage of the fact that they provide 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 hosting servers. With this added function you will not need tobe worried about your content due to the fact that you'll always have a copy of your sites on the Dropbox servers and on your PC in case that something happens - a script update failure, deleting files accidentally, etcetera.
