There are online backup solutions, but I don't know how comfortable I would be about sharing my HD over the internet.
Ok, I do know.... I would be very uncomfortable with online backups, and would never do that!

You can get an external HD from around $40 upwards.... and at around $5 a month for online backups, it is a cheaper and and more secure option.
If the backups are really important (sentimental items, business specific, etc) it is best to have 2 backup drives. One that you keep at your residence, and another in a safe secure location where your computer is not stored.
Here is a link to online backups:
