A backup of a website is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This function is rather handy, considering that you can never know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you will not delete something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. When your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the issue appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be very little, depending upon the particular case. Keeping backups on your computer is not very feasible, because you'd have to do it at least once daily and you could still lose info in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your website hosting provider, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, as some providers create backups once each week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a site that is being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for instance.
