You can make a backup on the server and after that restore it on the local PC.

The only way is you have to logon to the webserver/if UI provided by host company to have access of DB, Take backup, if you take backup using UI then it will copy directly onto your local computer otherwise you have to have FTP Access to download DB backup
from webserver and restore into the local machine.
If you are tachnical support team then you must have access of webserver or know host UI. Or contact to the company who hosted website.

Maybe you can create a web application that get all data from database and send it inside a textfile... or something like this. The others comments are right, your hosting service must be able to create a database backup.
