A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on another server and can be restored if something happens. This option is quite handy, considering that you can never know if a script update will not crash or if you won't delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. When your Internet site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it will be small, dependant upon the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your computer system is not very feasible, as you would need to do it at least once a day and you may still lose information if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your hosting company, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, as some providers generate backups only once each week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site that is being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for example.
