A backup is a copy of an Internet site which is kept on an independent server and could be restored if something wrong happens with the live website - a defeated script update, an unintentional deletion of some file or of your whole database, and so on. Restoring the site the way it was will eliminate or minimize the damage the issue may have caused, that is by all means a certainly better option than having to reconstruct the whole site from scratch.

It's important to take a look at how frequently they do that, though, because some companies create a backup once every few days, which can be far from enough for a booking Internet site or an e-commerce portal where the data is updated every single day. You should also see how easily a backup may be restored, which could be crucial if some problem appears on your Internet site.
