Dropbox, skydrive, box or any other? Which is the best and safest cloud service available now?
Website hosting doesn’t have to be expensive. You should only pay for what you want and never worry about hidden fees. We have plans for every budget. Whether you need the least ($4.99/mo with annual subscription) or most ($19.99/mo with annual), you still get better hosting for the price with us.
Data in Cloud storage services is generally safe. If your backup data contains viable data that would breach privacy or expose data it shouldn't you should look into using a secure cloud storage provider which ensures that your data is privately encrypted and only you hold the key / password to your data.
I would not suggest using a hosting provider to store backups - and the reason is simple. Cloud storage means that your data is stored in at least 3 different locations so even if complete data centres go down, your data is still stored in / at a different geographical location. So this as for disaster recovery.
You should also choose a provider that offers drive syncing. So if you need to be on the secure side try XXLCloud.com, if you want to choose a popular service choose Dropbox.
However. With Dropbox you need to take encryption into your own hand, which makes automated processes a hassle.
If more info is provided I might give more insights :)
