A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different web server and can be restored if something happens. This option is rather useful, considering that you cannot know if a script update will not go wrong or if you won't erase something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be little, dependant upon the specific case. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, due to the fact that you would have to do it at least once daily and you can still lose info if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your web hosting company, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some companies generate backups just once a week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with a website that's being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
