A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on another web server and could be restored if something happens. This feature is quite effective, given that you cannot know if a script update will not fail or if you won't eliminate something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. If your website is backed up, it can be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be very little, based on the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your personal computer isn't very feasible, simply because you'll have to do it at least once daily and you could still lose data if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your web hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, because some companies generate backups once per week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with a website which is being used and updated constantly, like an online store, for instance.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers offer everyday content backups as a standard. This option will allow you to develop your sites and never having to worry if something may go wrong, since our system produces a new backup every couple of hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is very simple and usually takes a few minutes - you could use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup which you want to be restored, or you could simply copy the backed-up files, due to the fact that they will be available in read-only folders in the File Manager section of your web hosting CP. Each and every backup folder contains the exact time and date it was made in its name, so you will be able to quickly locate and copy the content you require, even if you don't have any preceding experience with this sort of matters.
