What precisely does the Dropbox backup procedure involve? How to back up your web hosting account to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a well-known cloud file storage platform. Unlike a web hosting service where you can have a website that is accessible online by typing a domain name, Dropbox enables you to store files, that you can access via their app using a computer or a smartphone. The files aren't executed, so an html file shall be listed and not shown as an actual Internet page. The service allows you to access your content material from any location provided that you log in with the right credentials. Since the company allows third-party service providers to use their API, we've taken advantage of this service and we present you with the opportunity to create regular automatic backups of the data you have on our end to a Dropbox account provided that you have enough space. This shall incorporate one more level of security for your Internet sites since you shall always have a copy of any info that you might require and if the application is installed on your computer system, a copy shall be available not just on their hosting servers, but also within a folder on your end.
