Use Dropbox To Share And Host Your Website

There are many clever ways to use Dropbox like we covered in yesterday's feature. One thing we didn't talk about was how to use Dropbox to host your website for free, something that reader tehdavid sent in.

Use Dropbox as a web server — put your site in the public directory, and copy the public link to the homepage (index.html or whatever). You will then be able to browse around the site normally from this URL.

It's a useful trick to show someone else a site you're working on, or if you want to show a tiny page to a small number of people.
