Dropbox is a well known cloud file storage platform. In contrast to a hosting service where you can have an Internet site that's accessible online by inputting a domain, Dropbox allows you to store files, which you can access through their app using a PC or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file will be listed and not presented as an actual Internet site. The service permits you to access your content from any location as long as you log in with the right credentials. Because the company allows third-party providers to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we provide you with the chance to create regular automatic backups of the content that you have on our end to a Dropbox account so long as you've got enough space. This shall incorporate one more level of security for your Internet sites because you will always have a copy of any info that you may require and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy will be available not only on their hosting servers, but also within a folder on your end.
