A backup is a copy of a site which is kept on a different web server and can be restored if something goes wrong with the live website - a failed script update, an unintended deletion of a file or of your whole database, etc. Restoring the website the way it was will eradicate or lessen the damage the issue may have caused, that's by all means a certainly better alternative than having to rebuild the entire site from scratch. Although you may download a copy of your content on your PC, keeping a backup is a function that almost all web hosting companies include as part of their plans. It's important to check out how frequently they do that, though, because some service providers generate a backup only once every few days, that could be far from enough for a booking site or an e-commerce portal in which the data is updated every single day. Make sure that you see how quick and simple a backup can be restored, which could be essential if some problem appears on your Internet site.
