A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that's kept on another server and could be restored if something happens. This function is very useful, since you can't know if a script update shall not fail or if you won't eliminate something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. If your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was until the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it will be small, dependant upon the particular case. Keeping backups on your PC is not very feasible, as you would need to do it at least once a day and you could still lose information if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your website hosting provider, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, because some companies generate backups once each week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a website that is being used and updated constantly, like an online store, for instance.
