A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different web server and may be restored if something happens. This function is quite efficient, considering that you can't know if a script update will not crash or if you won't erase something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your website is backed up, it can be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it shall be minimal, based on the particular situation. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, because you would need to do it at least once each day and you could still lose data if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your website hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, because some providers generate backups just once per week, that will do no good if something goes wrong with an Internet site which is being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for example.
