A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that's kept on another web server and could be restored if something happens. This function is quite useful, since you can't know if a script update will not fail or if you will not delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. If your Internet site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be minimal, based on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your PC is not very feasible, as you would have to do it at least once each day and you could still lose info in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your website hosting provider, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, given that some companies generate backups only once per week, that will do no good if something goes wrong with an Internet site that's being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for example.
