How can I backup my project

Sorry but’s my first day with Django.
I created a project and I configured my database. I mported a database with serveral tables and about 900000 measures.
I follow a tuto and I ma ready to lunch inspectdb .
But I first would like to backup my django folder which has an environement ‘virtualenv env-console’
To backup, can I simply copy my project folder
cp pjtconsole pjtconsole_cpy?

That works, but most people use a Version Control System (VCS) such as git to keep backups of their files.
