What does the Dropbox backup procedure entail? How to save your Internet hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to a web hosting service where you can have an Internet site that is accessible online by typing a domain address, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access via their application using a personal computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not presented as an actual web page. The service enables you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the correct credentials. Since the firm allows third-party providers to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we give you the chance to create regular automatic backups of the information you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you have enough space. This shall incorporate one more level of security for your sites since you will always have a copy of any info that you may need and if the app is installed on your computer, a copy will be available not just on their hosting servers, but also in a folder on your end.
