A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different web server and may be restored if something happens. This option is rather handy, given that you can't know if a script update will not crash or if you won't delete something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. If your Internet site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be little, based on the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your PC is not very feasible, since you would need to do it at least once each day and you may still lose info in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your web hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some providers create backups only once per week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with a website which is being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for example.
