To host my blog, I added a file called index.html to Public/blog in Dropbox.


However, I get a 404 message if I try to access without the index.html. Is there anyway to get it to work? Possibly with the / at the end.


See this article as well. The site works, I just want to take off the index.html at the end.

Dropbox is intended for file sharing, not really web hosting and will even limit the traffic to your site if it gets too much traffic. If you are just trying to host some kind of blog I suggest using a blogging platform such as WordPress that allows you to create a free blog.


The index.html redirect from / is resolved by the web server. Given that Dropbox doesn’t offer a web hosting service, but a file hosting service, I doubt you’ll be able to make it work the way you want.
