A backup is a copy of a website that's kept on an independent web server and can be restored if a problem occurs with the live website - a failed script update, an accidental deletion of some file or of your entire database, etc. Restoring the Internet site the way it was shall remove or decrease the damage the problem may have caused, that is by all means a better alternative than having to rebuild your entire Internet site from scratch. While you can download a copy of your content on your personal computer, keeping a backup is a feature that most hosting companies include as part of their plans. You have to take a look at how often they do that, though, because some providers create a backup only once every few days, that could be far from enough for a booking Internet site or an e-commerce portal where the information is updated each day. It's also advisable to see how quick and simple a backup may be restored, which can be critical if some problem appears on your website.
