A quick look on their site states they allow you to store backups in multiple storage locations and can store 7 days worth of backups. And even if that is false (I doubt it), there are plenty of other alternative solutions in this space.

point me to the policy or law saying a web host must be a coder as setting up backups is 100% different to writing your own script.
I really don't know what you're getting at as I never said anything about a web host having to be a designer / coder. I said backups are very standard thing to have setup for a web host, there are plenty of solutions out there so no, you do not need to be a designer or coder and I never said you had to be.

I agree the backups feature needs redoing though there are alternatives available so you don't have to resort to storing them in your Gmail account which is a bad idea itself.
