Dropbox is a file storage platform, which has been gaining a lot in popularity nowadays as it permits you to access any content located on its hosting servers using any device so long as their application is installed. The information is synchronized between all units, which means you will be able to access it at any moment. Dropbox does not offer Internet hosting services, hence if you upload an html file it will not show up as a website and won't be executed. This service is used only for storing content and we have taken advantage of the fact that they provide an API to third-party companies to set up a backup service on our end, that you could use if you host your Internet sites on our servers. With this added feature you won't need tobe worried about your content as you will always have a copy of your Internet sites on the Dropbox servers and on your computer system in case that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files by accident, and so forth.
