A backup of a website is a copy of its content, which is kept on some other server and may be restored if something happens. This feature is very useful, since you can never know if a script update will not go wrong or if you won't erase something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it will be minimal, depending on the particular situation. Keeping backups on your computer system isn't very feasible, because you would need to do it at least once daily and you could still lose information in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your website hosting provider, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, since some companies generate backups just once a week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with a site that is being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for example.

The first is to open a support ticket with that request, suggesting from which date you would like the data backup to be restored. Another way is to restore the content yourself, for the reason that the backups are available in the File Manager section of the CP and you could browse them freely to see what each folder contains. All it requires to restore a backup is to copy the contents of the backup folder to the domain folder. You'll be able to see the timestamp for every single backup inside the account, so you can pick the one you need.
