A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that's kept on a different web server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is very effective, considering that you can't know if a script update will not fail or if you won't eliminate something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it will be very little, depending upon the specific situation. Keeping backups on your PC is not very feasible, since you would need to do it at least once each day and you may still lose information if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, as some providers create backups just once each week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with an Internet site which is being used and updated all of the time, like an online store, for instance.
