A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that's kept on a different web server and may be restored if something happens. This function is very effective, considering that you cannot know if a script update shall not crash or if you will not eliminate something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your Internet site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be small, based on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your personal computer is not very feasible, simply because you would have to do it at least once each day and you could still lose info in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your web hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some companies generate backups once each week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with a site which is being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
