A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on some other web server and could be restored if something happens. This function is quite useful, since you cannot 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. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it will be minimal, based on the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, since you'll have to do it at least once daily and you could still lose info in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your web hosting provider, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, as some companies create backups just once per week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a website that's being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
