Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update any file on a particular server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned things. The root user can also make various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature will give you full control of your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.
