Dropbox is a file storage platform, that has been gaining a lot in popularity lately as it enables you to access any content stored on its hosting servers using any device provided that their software is set up. The information is synchronized between all devices, so that you may access it at any moment. Dropbox does not offer Internet hosting services, therefore if you upload an html file it will not appear as a website and will not be executed. The service is used only for storing information and we have taken advantage of the fact that they offer an API to third-party companies to create a backup service on our end, which you could use if you host your sites on our servers. With this extra feature you won't need toworry about your content due to the fact that you'll always have a copy of your Internet sites on the Dropbox servers and on your personal computer just in case that something happens - a script update going wrong, deleting files by accident, etcetera.
