A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other server and may be restored if something happens. This function is quite efficient, because you can never know if a script update shall not crash or if you won't eliminate something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. If your Internet site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it will be little, based on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your PC is not very feasible, simply because you'll have to do it at least once every day and you may still lose information if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your website hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some providers create backups just once a week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with a website that's being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
