Dropbox Hosting of Web Sites Soon to Disappear

When we published the 1.1 version of Take Control of iWeb in 2011, we were excited about adding a “Publish to Dropbox” topic that explained how to use Dropbox as a Web host. The features were limited, but it was free (or low cost) and easy to set up.

Dropbox has been slowly removing this option, first by eliminating the Public folder from new accounts, and then, in 2016, by discontinuing HTML Rendering as a feature for all Dropbox Basic accounts.

And, Dropbox has now announced that as of September 1, 2017, the Public folder and HTML Rendering will be discontinued from all Dropbox accounts.

For more information, see the Dropbox support article, The Public folder.
