Understand better what Dropbox backups stand for and the way to activate them for your web hosting account.
Dropbox is a popular cloud file storage platform. Unlike a web hosting service where you can have a site which is accessible online by entering a domain address, Dropbox enables you to store files, that you can access via their app using a computer or a smartphone. The files are not executed, so an html file shall be listed and not displayed as an actual Internet site. The service allows you to access your content from any location as long as you log in with the correct credentials. Because the firm allows third-party companies to use their API, we have taken advantage of this service and we offer you the chance to generate regular automatic backups of the content you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided you've got sufficient space. This shall include one more level of protection for your sites since you will always have a copy of any information that you might require and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy shall be available not just on their web servers, but also within a folder on your end.
Dropbox Backups in Hosting
You'll be able to use Dropbox for backups whatever the hosting service

Linking one or even many Dropbox accounts takes just a few clicks and as soon as the connection with our system is established, you could choose if all of your data will be backed up there or only certain sites and databases. This is determined by the size of the content material you have on our end and the amount of space you have within your Dropbox account. The amount of backups you may have ranges from three to fourteen and our system will create a new one every single day, so you could have a copy of your info for up to 2 weeks back and you'll be able to access them on your laptop or computer as standard folders and files. You can certainly change the websites or the number of backups whenever you want. This functionality is a superb addition to the backups that we'll keep of your entire content 4 times daily.
