A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another hosting server and could be restored if something happens. This option is quite handy, because you can't know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you won't erase something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it will be minimal, depending upon the specific case. Keeping backups on your PC isn't very feasible, due to the fact that you'd have to do it at least once every day 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 provider, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, because some providers generate backups just once a week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with a site which is being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for example.
