A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another web server and may be restored if something happens. This function is very practical, because you can never know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you won't eliminate something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. If your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was before the problem appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it'll be minimal, dependant upon the particular situation. Keeping backups on your computer system is not very feasible, because you'll have to do it at least once daily and you could still lose data in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your website hosting provider, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some providers create backups just once each week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a website that is being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for example.
