A backup is a copy of a website that's kept on another hosting server and could be restored if something goes wrong with the live Internet site - a defeated script update, an unintended deletion of a file or of the whole database, etc. Restoring the site the way it was will take away or limit the damage the problem may have caused, that's by all means a certainly better alternative than having to rebuild your entire Internet site from scratch. Even though you could download a copy of your content on your personal computer, keeping a backup is a function that most hosting providers include as part of their packages. You must check how frequently they do that, though, because some providers create a backup once every few days, which may be far from enough for a booking Internet site or an e-commerce portal where the data is updated each day. It's also advisable to see how quick and simple a backup may be restored, which could be critical if some issue appears on your site.
