Understand better what Dropbox backups stand for and the way to activate them from your website hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage service, that permits you to store any type of content. The files are synchronized between all computer systems where the Dropbox app is set up and you could access them via any type of device, including a smartphone. Unlike an Internet hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for instance, shall show as an actual page with text and images on it, in Dropbox you will see the content as a list of files and folders. If you have an account with them or open a new one, you could take advantage of our free service and you can link a hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can make regular backups there. In this way you can have a copy of your information on our servers, on their servers and also on your PC and you will be able to access it from any gadget as long as the Dropbox app is installed, which will offer you more security in case something happens with your files, like an unintentional deletion, for example.
