A backup is a copy of an Internet site that's kept on another server and could be restored if something wrong happens with the live Internet site - an unsuccessful script update, an unintended deletion of some file or of the entire database, etcetera. Restoring the site the way it was shall remove or minimize the damage the problem may have caused, which is by all means a much better option than having to reconstruct your whole site from scratch. Though you can download a copy of your content on your computer, keeping a backup is a function that almost all website hosting providers offer as part of their plans. It is important to check how frequently they do that, though, because some providers generate a backup just once every couple of days, which can be far from enough for a booking site or an e-commerce portal where the information is updated each day. It's also advisable to see how easily a backup may be restored, which could be crucial if some issue appears on your Internet site.
