A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different server and could be restored if something happens. This option is quite efficient, since you can't know if a script update will not fail or if you will not eliminate something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your website is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be very little, depending upon the specific case. Keeping backups on your PC isn't very feasible, as you would need to do it at least once daily and you may still lose info if your last backup is not 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, as some companies create backups once every week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with an Internet site which is being used and updated all of the time, such as an online store, for instance.
