A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that's kept on some other web server and may be restored if something happens. This option is rather practical, considering that you cannot know if a script update won't fail or if you will not erase something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be very little, depending on the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your PC is not very feasible, since you would need to do it at least once daily and you may still lose info if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, because some companies create backups just once every week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with a site which is being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
