Get to know what Dropbox backups represent and the ways to activate them from your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage service, which permits you to store any kind of data. The files are synchronized between all machines in which the Dropbox application is set up and you can access them through any kind of device, even a smartphone. Unlike a hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for example, shall display as an actual web page with text and images on it, in Dropbox you shall see the content as a list of folders and files. If you have an account with them or create a new one, you'll be able to take advantage of our absolutely free service and you can link an Internet hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can generate regular backups there. That way you can have a copy of your information on our servers, on their servers and also on your personal computer and you will be able to access it from any machine provided that the Dropbox application is installed, which will give you more protection if something happens with your data, like an unintended deletion, for example.
