Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and change each file on a specific server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature gives you full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.
