A backup is a copy of a site that is kept on another server and could be restored if something wrong happens with the live website - a failed script update, an accidental deletion of some file or of the whole database, etcetera. Restoring the site the way it was will remove or limit the damage the issue may have caused, that is by all means a certainly better option than having to rebuild the whole site from scratch. Though you may download a copy of your content on your computer, keeping a backup is a function that the majority of website hosting companies include as part of their plans. You have to check out how often they do that, though, because some service providers create a backup only once every 7 days, which can be far from enough for a booking website or an e-commerce portal in which the data is updated every single day. You should also see how quick and simple a backup may be restored, which can be crucial if some problem appears on your website.
