A backup of a website is a copy of its content, which is kept on some other server and can be restored if something happens. This option is very efficient, considering that you cannot know if a script update won't fail or if you will not eliminate something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your website is backed up, it can be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it will be minimal, depending on the specific situation.
