A backup of a website is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different hosting server and may be restored if something happens. This feature is rather effective, since you can never know if a script update won't fail or if you will not delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. If your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it will be small, depending on the particular case. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, simply because you'd have to do it at least once each day and you could still lose information if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your web hosting company, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, as some companies create backups once every week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a site which is being used and updated constantly, like an online store, for example.

The second way is to restore the content yourself, due to the fact that the backups are available within the File Manager section of the CP and you can easily examine them freely to see what each individual folder includes. All it takes to restore a backup is to copy the contents of the backup folder to the domain folder. You shall be able to see the timestamp for every backup inside the account, so you can select the one you need.
