A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on some other web server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is very practical, because you cannot know if a script update won't go wrong or if you won't eliminate something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. When your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be little, depending on the particular case. Keeping backups on your computer system isn't very feasible, due to the fact that you'll have to do it at least once daily and you could still lose info in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your website hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, because some companies generate backups just once each week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with an Internet site which is being used and updated all the time, such as an online store, for instance.
