A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another web server and may be restored if something happens. This option is rather practical, considering that you can never know if a script update won't crash or if you won't erase something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your website is backed up, it can be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it shall be little, dependant upon the particular case. Keeping backups on your computer isn't very feasible, as you would have to do it at least once daily and you can still lose data in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your web hosting provider, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, because some providers generate backups just once a week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a website which is being used and updated all the time, such as an online store, for instance.
