A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different web server and could be restored if something happens. This feature is rather practical, since you cannot know if a script update won't go wrong or if you will not delete something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it will be small, depending on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your computer system isn't very feasible, as you'd have to do it at least once per day and you can still lose data in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some companies create backups once a week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with an Internet site which is being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for instance.

The first one is to open a support ticket with this request, revealing from which particular date you would like the data backup to be restored. The other way is to restore the content yourself, since the backups are available inside the File Manager section of the Control Panel and you will be able to take a look at them freely to see what each and every folder features. All it will require to restore a backup is to copy the contents of the backup folder to the domain folder. You will be able to see the timestamp for each backup within the account, so you can pick the one you need.
