A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another hosting server and may be restored if something happens. This option is very useful, considering that you can never know if a script update shall not fail or if you won't erase something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. If your site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was until the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be minimal, dependant upon the specific situation. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, since you'd have to do it at least once a day and you could still lose info if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your website hosting company, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, as some companies create backups once each week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with an Internet site that's being used and updated all of the time, like an online store, for example.
