A backup is a copy of a site which is kept on an independent server and could be restored if something goes wrong with the live Internet site - an unsuccessful script update, an unintended deletion of some file or of the entire database, etc. Restoring the site the way it was will eradicate or limit the damage the issue may have caused, that's by all means a certainly better option than having to reconstruct the whole site from scratch.

It's also advisable to see how easily a backup can be restored, which could be critical if some issue appears on your website.
