A backup of a website is a copy of its content, which is kept on another web server and may be restored if something happens. This function is rather efficient, considering that you cannot know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you will not delete something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. If your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be very little, depending upon the specific case. Keeping backups on your computer system is not very feasible, due to the fact that you'll have to do it at least once per day and you may still lose data in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your web hosting company, so you need to 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 which is being used and updated all of the time, such as an online store, for instance.
