A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is very handy, considering that you can't know if a script update will not crash or if you won't delete something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be little, dependant upon the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your computer system is not very feasible, because you'd have to do it at least once each day and you can still lose info if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your hosting provider, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, since some companies generate backups just once a week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site that's being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
