Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike an Internet hosting service where you can have an Internet site that's accessible online by typing a domain address, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access via their application using a PC or a smart phone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual webpage. The service permits you to access your content from any location provided that you log in with the correct credentials. Because the firm allows third-party firms to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we offer you the opportunity to create regular automatic backups of the data that you have on our end to a Dropbox account as long as you have sufficient space. This shall incorporate one more level of protection for your sites since you will always have a copy of any information that you may require and if the app is installed on your computer, a copy shall be available not just on their servers, but also in a folder on your end.
