A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that's kept on another hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This option is rather effective, since you can't know if a script update will not crash or if you won't eliminate something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. If your site is backed up, it could 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 little, depending upon the particular case. Keeping backups on your personal computer isn't very feasible, since you'll have to do it at least once daily and you may still lose info 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 create backups only once per week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with an Internet site that is being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for instance.
