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