A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that's kept on a different web server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is quite handy, considering that you cannot know if a script update shall not crash or if you will not eliminate something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. If your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it will be very little, depending upon the particular situation. Keeping backups on your computer isn't very feasible, since you would have to do it at least once daily and you may still lose information if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your web hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some providers create backups once every week, that will do no good if something goes wrong with a website that is being used and updated all the time, such as an online store, for example.
