A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is quite efficient, because you can't know if a script update will not crash or if you will not erase something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. If your Internet site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was before the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be little, dependant upon the specific case. Keeping backups on your computer system isn't very feasible, because you would need to do it at least once per day and you can still lose data in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your website hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, since some providers create backups once each week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with a website that's being used and updated constantly, like an online store, for example.
