Understand better what Dropbox backups signify and how to activate them for your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage platform, which has been gaining a lot in popularity recently as it allows you to access any content kept on its hosting servers through any device provided their software is installed. The content is synchronized between all units, so you can easily access it at any moment. Dropbox does not offer Internet hosting services, hence if you upload an html file it won't show up as a site and won't be executed. The service is used only for storing info 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, which you can use if you host your sites on our hosting servers. With this added feature you will not have toworry about your content since you'll always have a copy of your websites on the Dropbox servers and on your PC in case that something happens - a script update failing, deleting files by mistake, and so on.
