A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different server and can be restored if something happens. This function is very handy, given that you can't know if a script update won't fail or if you won't eliminate something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. If your Internet site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it will be small, dependant upon the specific case. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer isn't very feasible, simply because you'll have to do it at least once daily and you could still lose data in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, because some providers generate backups only once every week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a website which is being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for example.
