A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another hosting server and may be restored if something happens. This function is very handy, considering that you can never know if a script update shall not crash or if you won't delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your website is backed up, it can be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it will be little, dependant upon the specific situation. Keeping backups on your personal computer isn't very feasible, since you would have to do it at least once each day and you may still lose information in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your hosting provider, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, since some companies create backups just once every week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a website that's being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for instance.
