A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on another hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This function is quite practical, since you can never know if a script update won't fail or if you will not delete something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. When your site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be small, depending on the particular situation. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer isn't very feasible, because you'd have to do it at least once daily and you can still lose info in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your web hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some providers generate backups once each week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with a site that's being used and updated all of the time, such as an online store, for instance.

Another way is to restore the content on your own, as the backups are available in the File Manager section of the Control Panel and you could examine them freely to see what each individual folder features. All it will require to restore a backup is to copy the contents of the backup folder to the domain folder. You'll be able to see the timestamp for every single backup inside the account, so you can use the one you need.
