A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other server and may be restored if something happens. This function is quite practical, considering that you can't know if a script update won't go wrong or if you will not delete something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it'll be minimal, depending on the particular situation. Keeping backups on your PC isn't very feasible, because you'd have to do it at least once daily and you can still lose data in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your website hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, since some providers create backups just once each week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site that is being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for instance.
