A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different web server and could be restored if something happens. This function is rather useful, since you cannot know if a script update shall not crash or if you won't erase something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your Internet site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was until the issue appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it will be little, depending upon the particular case. Keeping backups on your PC is not very feasible, as you would have to do it at least once each day and you can still lose info in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some providers create backups once per week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with a website that is being used and updated constantly, like an online store, for instance.
