A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on some other server and may be restored if something happens. This function is quite useful, given that you can't know if a script update won't crash or if you will not delete something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your website is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be little, depending on the particular situation. Keeping backups on your computer is not very feasible, because you would need to do it at least once per day and you may still lose info if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your website hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, because some companies generate backups just once a week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with an Internet site that's being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for instance.
