A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different server and could be restored if something happens. This feature is very handy, given that you can't know if a script update will not go wrong or if you will not eliminate something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your website is backed up, it can be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it shall be small, based on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your personal computer isn't very feasible, simply because you'd have to do it at least once per day and you can still lose information if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your web hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, since some providers generate backups only once a week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a website that is being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for example.
