Understand better what Dropbox backups represent and the way to enable them for your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage service, that enables you to store any type of info. The files are synchronized between all units where the Dropbox app is set up and you can access them through any sort of device, even a smart phone. Unlike an Internet hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for instance, will show as an actual page with text and images on it, in Dropbox you'll view the content as a list of files and folders. If you have an account with them or create a new one, you could reap the benefits of our free service and you can link a hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can create regular backups there. That way you can have a copy of your content on our hosting servers, on their servers and also on your PC and you will be able to access it from any device as long as the Dropbox application is set up, which will give you more protection if something happens with your information, such as an unintentional deletion, for instance.
