Dropbox is a file storage service, which permits you to store any kind of content. The files are synchronized between all units in which the Dropbox application is set up and you can access them from any type of device, even a smartphone. Unlike a hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for example, shall appear as an actual webpage with text and images on it, in Dropbox you will view the content as a list of files and folders. If you have an account with them or start a new one, you'll be able to reap the benefits of our free service and you can link a web hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can generate regular backups there. In this way you could have a copy of your information on our web servers, on their servers and also on your laptop or computer and you shall be able to access it from any device provided that the Dropbox application is set up, which will provide you with more protection if something happens with your data, like an accidental deletion, for instance.

Thus you could have a daily copy of your information for the past 2 weeks in case you change or delete something that you need.
