When it comes to quality of service in cloud hosting, Dropbox is the one. It allows store any file and access it from any device when we need it. You only need to know your access data to log into your Dropbox account from your mobile or PC.
What is Dropbox?
For those who do not know Dropbox is a cloud hosting service which is used to access your files from anywhere in the world. To access your files you just have to log into your account from a browser, mobile device, tablet or PC application.
It works like a pendrive only that the files are hosted on a Dropbox server that works as a kind of virtual hard disk. Just one Internet connection to access files or if it is synchronized with the PC, access the Dropbox folder.
Dropbox has paid and free plans for your use. The downside of the free plan is that it has a limited amount of storage up to 2GB and it doesn’t have all the features available like the paid options. The good news is that Dropbox Basic accounts can raise their storage limit up to 16GB if you invite your friends to use Dropbox.
