A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that's kept on a different server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is rather useful, given that you can't know if a script update will not fail or if you will not erase something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your Internet site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be small, dependant upon the particular situation. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer isn't very feasible, due to the fact that you'll 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 will need to rely on your hosting company, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, since some providers generate backups only once per week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a site that is being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for instance.
