A backup of a website is a copy of its content, which is kept on some other hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This function is quite practical, because you cannot know if a script update will not crash or if you will not eliminate something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be little, based on the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your computer isn't very feasible, due to the fact that you'll have to do it at least once per day and you could still lose data in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your website hosting provider, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, as some companies create backups just once every week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site that is being used and updated all the time, such as an online store, for example.
