A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other server and may be restored if something happens. This function is very practical, considering that you cannot know if a script update will not go wrong or if you will not erase something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your website is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it will be minimal, dependant upon the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your PC isn't very feasible, because you'd have to do it at least once daily and you could still lose info if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your web hosting provider, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some providers generate backups only once per week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with a site that's being used and updated all of the time, like an online store, for example.
